Cheers and Goodbyes to 2013!

“Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, ‘WOW . . . What a ride!” As 2013 comes to a close, and what a ride is truly was, now it is time to reflect on the year.  It is a time to reflect on the blessings of the year that have brought us […]
