Simply Fabulous

In 2013, I did the unthinkable.  I deleted my Facebook profile.  Gasp! Although I haven’t looked back once, the reactions I get are always so interesting.  Usually it’s one of these: “Why??”  (while looking at me like I’m crazy) “Oh, I wish I could do that too…” “I would but I have to stay on…

Yesterday, the pastor at my church preached a message about transitions.  Among the many useful things he said, one in particular stood out to me.  That when you’re going through a major change or transition in your life – that is most likely when you are getting your story.
