Good News! Blessings

It’s been a tough couple of weeks.  Okay, it’s been a tough few months if we’re being honest, but I feel like it’s been a particularly tough couple of weeks.  Between the wildfires raging through the state and the smoky unhealthy air we’re dealing with, the concerns with COVID spread and people either not socially […]
