What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain  May 13 to May 19, 2018.


I learn something new every day at ActiveRain!  With this series, I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment.  It could be something techie, something about Real Estate, about a place or person!  Or it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!

I thought this one was an interesting question and I'm sure there are many answers!

I do remember reading Laura's mom's posts. Her post today brought a huge smile to my face. If you've lost a loved one, I think you'll enjoy this.

Oh wow, what a nice surprise. I just noticed this and all the comments.  I had forgotten that I even wrote the post...that's how busy and overwhelmed I am today.  Actually, I think it just means I need more sleep...because I was not overly productive these last couple of days.  Thank you.
