I Feel Like Such A Failure To God
Morning friends, This week I’m traveling to Toronto, Canada for some meetings. It’s so beautiful here. I wish I could stay longer. I’ve loved Vancouver, BC when I vacationed there a few years ago.

I’ve Emotionally Detached But How Are My Kids Going To See Me?
Morning friends, I am in Canada, Ancaster to be exact, and it’s freezing here. I’ve become a Phoenix girl and cold weather is something I just don’t like anymore. But it is beautiful.
