What to Do If You Find a White Dove

  How It Happened 
    When the white dove first appeared in our yard. I was dancing around the living room to "Big Girls Don't Cry!"
    It took several hand gestures to get my husband and son to notice the bird- and they were in the front yard (playing).

You are Doing Your Best and That's Good Enough

    Hopefully some of what I've learned, and practice on a daily basis, can help you to Be Your Best You!
