Embrace

She looks around the room, everything is a mess and the to-do list still has empty boxes waiting for their tick. “Is this worth the time? I have so much to get done.” She takes a peek at her app, today’s reading, a quick scan. This doesn’t feel right, it’s like popping my head around…

Aim High Assembly
