Work is Work

When I dropped my son off to his first day at work, it felt a lot like dropping him off to his first day at kindergarten. It was hard. If you are like me, letting go of our children does not come naturally. I do it because […]

I came across this picture the other day. It brought back a flood of memories. Even though I’m not in the picture, I was there. I was the one taking it….And I remember some of the emotions I was feeling at that time. It might have looked […]

No fair!
