  • The other day while listening to radio, I heard a song by Country Legend, George Jones. It was one of his last songs recorded, titled “Choices.”

  • We have all heard the age-old question, “Which comes first, the chicken or the egg?”

  • This morning as I write this I’m at home because I re-hurt my knee as I was walking out the door.

    It will be OK, but I decided to work from home today as a precaution, ice my knee, sit with it elevated, not put pressure on it.

    The ice is comforting and cool and my laptop fits perfectly on my lap.

    Thank God for small things!

    The other day my great-niece Leah, 7, sent me a text to tell me she loves me. Leah, as little as she is, has a huge heart.
