I am so thrilled to have had such a great response to Just Be With Me, so I thought I should update you on how it’s going. So far things are going okay. I wish I could say that everyone is peachy, there have been no tantrums (by children or adults) and that I am […]Read More Just Being- Update #1
Yes, yes I know this is technically week 3 and I missed posting this last week… but life happens.
