About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    Isn’t it astonishing how fragile these delicate flowers appear to be, yet so resilient in the face of torrential rain and gale force winds, scorching sun and shivering temperatures? Lovely photos 😊
