Confession: I butt heads with my mom. I can be particular and independent, she is passionate and involved. We’re both fiery, in our own ways, and stubborn. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. We don’t hit conflict often, but when we do it’s heavy, hurtful and hard for us both. Yet here’s the…Read More
