The Price of Frustration

I hit my computer on three different occasions today! On the third hit, my spirit stopped me in my tracks with a “Wow! Wow! Wow! Atta girl! Stop! Something’s not right!” I paused and immediately did a self-assessment to identify what was the root cause of the behavior that went against the fruits of the…

Great Things Never Grow There

My backyard had a huge mango tree that shaded more than a quarter of our backyard land space.
