On our journeys in life, we at times experience challenges and/or situations that may result in hurt, pain, disappointment, grief, and separation.

Many of us have our feet firmly planted on the treadmills of life – pursuing careers, building businesses, running homes, etc. Hence, our lives become so cluttered, we loose sight of the woman we have become.
