When Silence is a Good Thing

You know that saying, "Silence is golden.  Unless you have a toddler.  Then it's very, very bad."  Or something like that.  Well, I'm definitely not a toddler, so let's say that a long absence from this blog means things are going pretty well!I have mentally started 10 or 12 posts in the last several months,… Continue reading When Silence is a Good Thing
