Doing the Hard Things

Doing the Hard Things

I’ve run a couple marathons.  Done some triathlons. Sat silently next to friends whose spouses passed away way too early.  I’ve been up all night night-after-night with sick kids, put beloved animals to sleep, stayed behind to sell houses when my husband’s job transferred him to other […]

We can all agree that we want what’s best for our families, for our children.  We want a safer America and a safer world.  We want to be able to live our lives without preventing someone from living theirs.  And from them calling the shots on ours.  We want to be able to spend our money in the way we see fit, and we want to be able to speak our minds without being shamed for it.

Whether we’re Left or Right, I think – I hope! – we can agree on these things!   That’s my prayer for our nation anyway.  So click through these links – or not! – because it’s your choice.  That’s what we do in America! 😉
