A clothesline of gratitude – a really fun, funny and deep conversation #lioness

JBL Compass doodled by Michele Stone

When we first started this episode, Michele said the main topic should be a “Mixed Bag from the Universe.” And she was so right! It was awesome! (note to Grammar peeps – I can never remember if the period should go inside the quote. I think it should. Not sure. :-))
