Hello everyone! Seriously, where has September gone?! Wasn’t it just Labor day? But guess what, it’s that time again for Shining Moments, a weekly gratitude overview and reflection. This week’s reflection is about Normalcy.

I feel like this month has TOTALLY flown by, but then again with school back in session, Labor day, Hurricane Florence… I guess it was easy to get wrapped up in the chaos and business.
