Touching Hearts

| Priscilla Waggoner | Indy Picks
Occasionally, in the day-to-day course of meeting people, a person will come across someone who just seems to be on the right path.  It looks different on different people, yet, at the same time, there’s a commonality present.  Maybe it’s the joy in their voice or a certainty of purpose that many of us lack.  But, whatever it is, it can emanate from a person with the same steady glow as a flame sends out its light.
