When Our Good Intentions Are Gone By Noon 8

I know how it goes. We start our day with good intentions. Good intentions of great endeavors, activities, and attitudes. We wake up planning that today will be the day.

When It’s Time For You To Live 8

I dropped my phone in the toilet this morning. (Clean water, by the way.) I’m wearing a heart monitor for a month. (Yeah, my heart decided to rebel recently.)
