We are over stretched in every which way imaginable. Financially, emotionally and time. We have many people helping us temporarily, but only non-paying people keep everything together. I hope we are heading in the right direction?

2011 - Progress
“Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer.

If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
