One Good Word (Excerpt) – Journaling after Brain Injury

    Hi Barbara,
    I found a wonderful list of “Quotes for the Day” chalked on a blackboard outside a Virginia bakery last week.My favorite was “Patience is the ability to let your light shine after your fuse has blown.” Lends itself easily to journaling ideas!
