On The Take

On The Take

Every now and then, the focus on just one word can invite you on a reflective journey.  Especially when it’s a 4-letter word! Recently, this was the case for me as I read a daily reflection on how – and how often – we use the word TAKE. I had never really “taken” the...

Magical Memories

Magical Memories
