Nothing like seeing yourself through the eyes of strangers to understand the person you’ve become. I look at the tens of post drafts that I have and thank God for thinking before posting. Early this year I’ve met in person a non-stranger! Someone who thinks she knows you very well, while you just follow one another on twitter. We got…

The Selfless Side of Selfishness…

The words are so strong and…
