New Perspectives

I’ve been very quiet on here recently.  Yet again.  I’m just not seeming to find the time to get any writing done.  Every night I have a blog post running through my mind, and every night I go to bed having not written a thing.  Being at home with two little ones, a toddler who is very bright and demands constant conversation, interaction, and stimulation, and a 7
