Hi, there! I'm going to jump right into this week's Care because it's such an important part of living a great life! Ever since my car broke down and my cross-country trip was derailed and my plans for the family get-together changed and I found myself without a place to hang my hat and I suddenly had no means of transportation in a very rural part of the country ...
