Well, we did it!!! I am so thankful to have this week completed. For me, this 1st week wasn’t as bad as I have experienced in the past.

Okay. If you know me, I go radio silent when I’m overwhelmed or feeling not well. It’s just what I do.

It was a fascinating experience for all… Read More Ready, Set, Go!

As I am sitting here, repairing my favorite blanket that Paul and I received as a wedding gift from my family’s church/ward 23.5 years ago, I am taking a moment to pause and be thankful for the use of my hands again!!!
