Thankful Things Thursday: Bono Is My Friend

Today is Thursday. It is Thankful Things Thursday. That means we will be thankful for things that we may otherwise dismiss every other day of the week. I am hungover and tired, so let’s get right to it, shall we? I’m thankful for live music and U2. Last night I went to the U2 concert […]
