I was a very busy mom along with my husband and now that our six daughters have grown up I took the challenge to return to work. Traveling on the train into Dublin I receive a “Time Out” email from Maria’s Place every Wednesday morning. It refreshes the beautiful memories we all have as children growing up right into adulthood. A tonic for the heart.
