Make Mine Broken!

We don’t all view BROKEN the same way, do we? I think it might be difficult for some of us to connect to those we consider BROKEN if we have experienced “breaking” in only minor or irritating ways. For instance, if you are pitching a fit because you just broke another nail? Trust me. You…
