Real Life

Real life is a lot of hard work. Every day. Even more so this time of the year – the week before Easter. Being in charge of feeding the hungry before the Holiday Season can be a challenge. Coming in to work before daylight and have 25 pallets of groceries waiting for you can make you wish you were someplace else…

Tomorrow is another day filled with “not enough or too much”.

It is nice to come home and see strays of sunshine seeping into my craft room and know that I have paper and colors to play with…
