You Don’t Look Your Age… and Other Fairy Tales – “This happened to me, learn from it!”

I have made mistakes – some with the very best intentions and others, because I wasn’t thinking at all. I have reaped unintended consequences for my decisions, as have those I love, simply because they existed in my small world. I call it collateral damage. There was plenty to go around.

I want to talk to you about these…
