Finding the gift in ‘goodbye’

For those of you who know me, you know that I’ve been processing a difficult ‘goodbye’ during this last season of my life.

I never thought I’d want to talk about this…

You know how you have parts of your life that you find ways of glossing over when you’re around others?

Well, for years, one of mine was my relationship with food, […]
