The Magic of Love

Something magical happened today! As I came to work, I found a lady responsible for coordinating class schedules and assignments being exceedingly overwhelmed with all kinds of issues that converged, as challenging issues are wont to do, suddenly and at the most inopportune time.

The next Lasting Joy club get-together is on Tuesday, February 27. 

While sharing and learning, we’ll be making something chocolatey delicious!

You don’t want to miss this!

Instructions for remote access are coming up soon. See you there, Beautiful People!
