Lost Wedding Ring

Lost Wedding Ring.   It was a long time ago that my husband found a lost wedding ring. He picked it up when he was in his teens. I first noticed it around 15 years ago.

My good deed

I often wonder if people realize the power they have to create change. It only takes one action to create a positive reaction. I take one morning a week to hang out with myself. I know crazy but it is a 2.5 hours that I need. I went to the mall today and I walked by a cupcake store. It is called Dawn's cupcakes. The business women in me questioned the location choice and the pricing. I couldn't image the amount of cupcakes to just pay the rent on the location. Then it hit me. I do not need a ...

I was going to  give from my heart and in return I would have the memory of their reaction. I was going to document those memories and continue to build our ...
