Love from a Mother's Heart.....

I know it isn't close to Valentine's Day, but I'm betting the stores have already switched over their displays. I thought I join the

I had a wonderful day today, visits from Amelia Pilsch, Bea Powell, who graciously stopped by to adjust my glasses, something I had planned to do, well, before you know what. Jean Gordon, my mom, Katie, MK, and of course,JonathanIf I left someone out, I'm so sorry.

  1. Love you mama!! Hope the glitter uggs brought some shine to you today.

  2. Formatting means nothing...especially with such wise content! I love you Penny, dear! Christy

    Penny, your words of wisdom are good. Family illnesses and loss of family members can bring out the best or the worst in folks. Your family has pulled together to support you using their strengths and talents. How lucky you are!! Take care!
