    Today Is

    My birthday. And it's no different from any other day. Not special at all. Pay the bills do some chores and go back to work. But I am definitely thankful for my family and another year.

    Shiny And Brand New

    It's time to start anew...Shiny and Brand New. Time to start a new chapter in life, throw away the old, and breathe in clean, fresh, healthy air. There is no reason to stay negative. All it does is weigh us down. You have to start somewhere whether it be closing the chapter of...
