I can’t believe that July has ended. Where did the time go? This month was bittersweet. On July 20, I celebrated my one year wedding anniversary and on July 26, I sadly reflected on the loss of my mom six years ago. The month came with the usual life challenges, but by the grace of God I rose above them and pressed on.
