Save One

I love animals.  My daughters and I used to volunteer with Kittico Cat Rescue to help cats find homes.  At any given time it seems there’s a surplus of animals and not enough homes to go around.  It makes me sad. My dad was a big animal lover.  I guess I get my love of… Read More ›

I will be working… Read More ›


Doctor Doctor!

Today I am thankful for doctors.  I spent a lot of time in hospitals with my mom over the years.  She was a 3 time cancer survivor and had other health problems that came about due to the lingering effects of the chemotherapy she had to endure.  I am thankful for the care and kindness… Read More ›
