Spring savings are in bloom at With OurKidsMom & Makobi Scribe Spring is quickly jumping into summerlike weather here in Missouri and I have Spring Cleaning Fever.

Planning for the Future with My Directives | Relieve Your Family From Emotional Burden

This past month has been eye opening for myself and our family. My Dad had an unexpected illness that put him in the hospital for nearly a month so far.
