A Great Gift

It’s Christmas.  What are you getting your loved ones?  How much are you spending?  What is the gift you are most excited to give?  What gift are you sure is going to get the reaction you are looking for?  Have you even started shopping?  Are you already done?  It’s all about the gifts.

Challenging Myself

 I didn’t try for years due to the Trey days, my shoulders, and money.  All three of those things are no longer an issue to differing extents.  So what holds me back?
