Today is Thursday.

Which comes first…a good mood or a great day?  Am I in a good mood because I’ve had a great day or did I have a great day because I’m in a good mood?  One of those things that just makes you go hmmmmm. It was my hubby’s day off and I didn’t have any…

The challenge for today.

I’m going to share a little personal background here today as a preface to this story.  Long story, short -we are partners in a small business that has hit a bump in the road.  Might bounce back…might not.  Time will tell.  My husband has chosen to remain a partner in the company, but seek outside…
