Never Give Up
My oldest Sister sent me this today, and I had to share it with my friends. There are days when we want to give up, we wonder if we will ever reach our goals. When you start feeling like this, keep Patrick Ivison in mind. If he can do it, we all... Read more

Loved My Week-end!
Yesterday, my Hubby and I did our weekly grocery shopping. When we came out of the store, I looked up at the sky, and my mouth flew open. The sky was golden colored. I have never seen it like this. I didn't have the camera with me (gerr), so I ... Read more
