Christmas Trees and Self-Esteem

I Am A Superhero! No, Really!

I am a powerful person. How so, you ask? I have¬†the ability to change the way people feel. Let me explain. Yesterday, I stopped to fill up the car before heading home. Soon afterward, a man came outside and began emptying the trash cans at the gas pumps. He didn’t seem to be in a … Continue reading
