Motivating Monday! Oh, emotions spilling over with parents seeing their first borns to college. This will be our experience as week progresses.

Find yourself blessed to find one who will sharpen with iron. Though the words are sometimes harsh and/or hard to swallow know it is a blessing, as I have.
