  • Take the opportunity to say, ‘Good job, buddy’

    Spring break is a time of renewal, of the Earth and of the spirit. I hope you have enjoyed the time off last week if you have children or grandchildren. It is always lovely to see the college students come home for a few days even if it is to do a few loads of laundry and eat a good meal.

    As we see new growth popping up through the ground, I hope we’ll use this as a time to allow for new growth in ourselves and helping our youth to find it within them.
