Toilet paper, anyone?

It sneaked up on me, the apocalypse. I’ve been watching the virus since December, when I started reading about a mysterious virus in Wuhan that was spreading fast. I watched the numbers nearly double each day, and I worried. But China is a long ways away from Minnesota and the government there shut things down, […]

Positive Intentions

I’ve been working with an ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) sponsor for a couple months now, and shes given me some daily activities to do. 1. 5 minute breathing exercise: breathe in through the nose for the count of 3 then out for the count of 6. 2. 5 minutes prayer: she suggested a combination […]
