Between,  the planning & preparing of fundraisers for My Guatemala trip in full swing ,baby showers, moving & getting my daughter Jess moved & settled into her new home before the arrival of my 1st grandson, it left me plenty of opportunity to go threw things & determine what was really needed & what wasn't!
 I found myself getting caught up in "THE LIGHTENING OF OUR LOADS". What a wonderful feeling to let go of belongings that havent seen the light of day in years being tucked away in a closet, attic or basement!
