Today over a thousand people will be talking about compassion; an entire online … Continue reading Be the light that guides the way #1000Speak

Heart-shaped Candy – #WeekendCoffeeShare

If we were having coffee I’d tell you I had to battle my way out the door because I got so much post this morning!
