I just returned from a week in Chicago with family, old friend and some ridiculously cold weather. I also had my 10-Year High School Reunion. It was a great trip overall, and it helped to remind me of all that I am grateful for. The time off work also left me with some recharged batteries, ready to push through to the end of the year and beyond. So, I just want to take this time to say thank you. For reading, listening and everything else y’all do that make me want to keep writing. Let this playlist remind you of why you keep on the grind. That’s what I kicked if off with Sly & the Family Stone – “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)” and let Spotify Radio do the rest.
