Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson | August 25, 2016 | Religion
Do you ever wake up and wonder where you are? If you travel a bit, it's a common syndrome--but all of us wake up and wonder, "What day is today? What do I need to do today?" Sometimes when a death, divorce, or tragedy hits, you wake up, and it takes a minute to remember the source of your inner sadness.
