The Gift of Life
It has often been said that you don’t really appreciate what you have until you lose it, or it’s been taken from you. As one who was closer to the ultimate of that experience than I realized I have come to have a new appreciation for that truth.

So now you and I have a really good, constructive reason for…Continue
