Episode 112: The Giving Tree

Show Notes

We recently had to chop down a tree that has been on our property for years. It brings me great sorrow because change is difficult for me. I have so many memories of Gracie and Molly playing under the tree and now that it’s gone it’s like a piece of Molly is gone as well. But with these changes, I begin anew.
