Will Find You

I read this quote and made it into a meme. I’m grateful that I learned how to make memes. When I first began, a stranger stepped up and sent me a message that was very discouraging. He owns several Facebook pages with lots of followers, so maybe he was trying to help the newbie? I […]

Enjoying the Journey
