Say Yes!

I went for a walk on the Riverwalk a few mornings ago. I was needing the exercise... needing the quiet time... needing the reminder...  I had started a podcast as I left my building.  Even though I was hearing the speaker I usually don't retain the first few minutes since I'm crossing a street and focused on getting past any traffic.   I had only taken a few steps on the Riverwalk and as my eyes are taking in the beauty of this view I hear the speaker say "The Supernatural starts with Yes" And boy does it!  In that moment I again was reminded of my drive across that bridge late one night and tearfully saying "Yes" once again...

He{ART} Night

This time last Sunday a group of women from various seasons of life gathered to share stories and play with watercolors. I've loved hearing your thoughts on the night and can't wait for the next one!   I hope you've taken some time this week to reflect on your story and maybe even written down some of those thoughts.  If not...maybe this will be the week. Hope you enjoy this little video from the night! Susan xoxo
