Imagine this…you’re about 10. Two younger sisters…7 and 2. It’s summer and the only things you really care about are cool softball bruises and how many different tan lines you can get from the swimming pool.

That was my first lesson.

In life, ‘WITHOUT STRUGGLE, THERE IS...

I first thought about counting all the unfinished articles and entries I've got tucked away as to remind me of my lack of blog activity and hopefully spark some inspiration to finish one (or a few), but I worried by the time I finished counting I would have lost my ins...
