I’m Very Proud of Myself!

I’m very proud of myself!  That may sound like a weird thing to say but it’s true.  The last month has been brutal for many reasons but it hasn’t stopped me.  There were so many times during the last couple years that it would have been easier and totally justifiable to not go through with this years World … Read more
