  1. Reading your list makes my day! You've got it right about the blessings in your life - the little moments. Thank you for making us stop to see them. What a joy to see 3 grandchildren grow and bloom.

  2. Not gonna lie, #362 was not a blessing! The study was and all you ladies were, but the fact that it was the last day just STINKS!
    Keep up those other ones though. What a blessed person you are!

  3. Yes, Becca, you are right! I guess I meant the study and ladies were a blessing! So glad that you joined us for it! We'll do another one soon, I'm sure!

  4. You and your blog are pure inspiration!!!!

  5. Thanks Donnette! Love ya, friend!


I enjoy and appreciate reading your comments!
