How well would you say that you handle losing? My entire life I have always picked up skills pretty quickly and have been naturally pretty decent at anything I tried my hand at.  I always excelled at new sports quickly and I very rarely ever came across a problem I couldn’t find a solution to.  That seems all well and good, but I’ve come to realize that this had actually made me mentally weak. I have very little grit.  I came to realize this when I was playing my umpteenth round of racket ball against my now-husband, not wanting to leave until I won a match.  He had just taught me the game a couple weeks prior to this showdown … Read More

This past December they gave a brief update on this experiment and where it’s headed. Below is a snippet of the latest announcement from Google: “Currently our crawling, indexing, and ranking systems typically look at the desktop version of a page’s content, which may cause issues for mobile searchers when that version is vastly different from the mobile version.

“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” – Mother Teresa My grandmother was someone who radiated love and beauty everywhere she went. She loved nothing more than being able to spoil her grandchildren and, like the famous Mother Teresa quote, no one left her presence without feeling a little brighter.

They remember how she made them feel. It’s been over five years since she passed, but her love always remains with my family and I. Every … Read More
