Today’s forgiving journal: Welcoming Myself Home

Today’s forgiving journal is about welcoming myself home. I participate in Frank’s photo challenge (it’s awesome!). Today’s focus is orange.  I thought, “Oh that’s easy, I love orange!”  Then I ended up taking a picture of something that I had no idea WHY I was taking it – a photo of a subway sign.
