• For some reason, I don't get things the first time. Even if someone explains something really well...sometimes it takes me hearing it again and again. Maybe I was just distracted with the "What" while they were explaining the "Why." Or, I was thinking about something completely random.


  • For the past several weeks, I’ve been counting down to today’s lunch.  I played it out in my head a million times, and I have to say today was so much more amazing than I imagined.  Today, some of our staff had the honor of having lunch with 20 of the most influential people in Pickens County.  Not only are they influential, but I watched them talk about their genuine love for the kids and the families they come in contact with every single day.  I wish you could have been in the room.  Any guesses on who we had lunch with?
