I’ve been working on this surrender thing for some time now. I’ve also felt this stirring way deep down on the inside to approach this subject cautiously.

Oh my goodness…it’s December already! Where did this year go to??? Seems to me it whizzed by and I didn’t get to experience as much as I’d liked.
