A Belated Update

Yes, I realize it’s NOT Sunday evening. It’s in fact MONDAY evening. I was SUPPOSED to write and give you an update on what I did (or didn’t) get done from my anxiety-driven list. “A day late and a dollar short.” I think this will be my epitaph. So...

CAUTION: MOOD SWINGS AHEAD

There are days when I cannot get to work fast enough. I get in the van, shut the door, turn on my uplifting music, and relax. After 15 minutes of listening to what I want to listen to and spending some quiet time in prayer, I arrive at my...
