It Just Takes One

Integrity. What does that mean to you? On the internet it says this: “Integrity means following your moral or ethical convictions and doing the right thing in all circumstances, even if no one is watching you.

The End is Only the Beginning

Fall. Some people love it, while others dread it. I guess it depends on where you live. It was always one of my favorite seasons when I lived in Indiana. Humidity was gone. Leaves were stunning.

What I found out in the ER

If you have ever experienced a heart attack, or at least had similar symptoms – then you know how scary it feels. I recently made my first visit to the ER in Florida. When my husband walked in after doing a 5 mile run, I told him I needed to go. The ER: Naturally, they didn’t […]
