Top 5 Wednesday

Hello Wed- nes- day! For Top 5 Wednesday we dive into a summary of the good good:

I felt exposed but yet not judged; all the emotions that I tucked away whilst waiting for the silver lining was right there on the screen. The author words were inspirational and her outlook left me thinking “darn, she read my mind.”
