Y’all know the first thing I do on Friday morning, yes, even before coffee, is go to my hubs’ computer in the laundry room and punch in www.katemotaung.dot.com! I don’t read a thing except for that one word prompt! After that, I go back to the kitchen, get my coffee, go to my chair… [Read More]

thankful for truth
It’s a blog-o-sphere pandemic! Everyone’s got it! It’s a contagion! Spreading like wildfire! What is it? It’s the grateful bug! Tis the season for thanks-giving and, what a wonderful season that is.
