It seems like an unusual tourist activty and one I didn’t see in my future. But here I am going around Scotland collecting

Some things just speak to your heart, encapsulating what fills your soul up. Today’s post does that on many levels.
I knew when I was given this gift that it would eventually become a blog post. I just needed the right story to accompany the message. Today I saw and recorded living proof of the words below. Continue reading “Heart and Soul A+”
