What's on My Mind

From College Football to Life...

Dear mama….

Dear mama, Where do I begin? I'll start by simply saying "thank you." Thank you for teaching me what compassion looks like in action; I remember baking blueberry muffins and taking them to the nursing home, over and over again. I remember our stays lasted MUCH longer...
