Christmas Expectations

My mom and I enjoyed some sweet time together this week. As we were talking, my strong dislike of change became the topic of conversation. My mom laughingly commented that I have strongly fought change since I was little. She is so right, change is extremely difficult for me. Being an adult single during the holidays … Continue reading
