How Thirsty are You? Have you ever been really thirsty? Tongue stuck to the roof of your mouth, thirsty?

Just A Thought

Some are saying “I can’t wait for my real life to begin.” It will begin when I finish high school or college or get a real job or career, or get married, have children or retire… etc. Guess what? You are in real life. Make the most of your days because right now you are […]
