Life can be difficult at times. I’m sure this is not news to anyone, but so often we forget that the difficult times pass.
Recently, my family was touched by violence fueled by hatred and ignorance, which is why my internet spaces have been silent. Time passes and bruises heal, and sometimes we just need a little extra help to put painful events behind us.
