Sadly, we … Continue reading “Friday Reflections — 10-13-17”
Have you ever heard of “the battle of the bulge”? No, not the battle during World War II, but the continual struggle that many have fought on a daily basis, and still continually fight. Of course, I am talking about a struggle with weight. I am veteran of many conflicts, and have lost more than … Continue reading “The Inward Struggle”
