To Becky, who in a brief comment, probably written in jest, suggested I start a blog. This blog is simply my thoughts...my life...me... shared in hopes that something I've gone through, think, or feel may in some way help another. So take care when reading or sharing, for I am fragile. I am not implying I am right or wrong.… Continue reading Dedication and Disclaimer
5/8/17 - 5/21/17 I have to say, I had decided to stop the blog posts, which is why I'm a couple weeks behind. However, a story shared on Sunday reaffirmed the need to continue.
