The Ugly Truth

As of late, I’ve found myself in somewhat of a “funk” (even though I detest that expression). The people who are close to me knew immediately, and all they wanted to do was help. They’re good people.

My friend (whose life has paralleled mine as we both experienced a great loss) … More Take Me, or Leave Me
