A Note of Thanks

Call it the Miss Manners in me but I am always writing thank you notes.  Not just for gifts but just to show extreme appreciation for love and consideration.  Lately I have had so much thanksgiving in my heart for others.  I am so appreciative of their love, concern, and kindness.  As I began toContinue reading “A Note of Thanks”
