Reflect often on your blog and I know it will lead to more joy in your life but making the sorrow more tolerable. You must move forward, not forgetting to love sweeter and more often. Have no regrets to serve others unselfishly. Your have a lot of wisdom and Susan appreciated that in you. God bless you today.ReplyCancel
