Gratitude – but not the cliché Thanksgiving kind…yet!

It’s fall and I’ve got my favorite fall nail color on, five cans of pumpkin in our pantry, our cozy blankets at the ready, and I ate an apple at lunch; it’s official. The two other things that come to mind when I think of fall are the PSW Board Retreat and “back to school”. I’m using this month’s blog post to reflect on both with a heart full of gratitude.
