    Thank you Megan :-) May your week be full of joy!

  • I’m here from Ann’s – and it’s Thursday – but there were a ton of Grateful linkies to read – and I love reading them. And it took me this long to get to yours.

    And when I read through the lists I like to think about it a little and pick a favorite – my favorite from yours was the last one 391. Chocolate smiles and dancing. (that is a memory shot – thinking you will look at that with her kids one day – and smile – and they’ll laugh – and she’ll say “MOM!!” – and you’ll be happy) {smile}

    I’m really glad I read you today.

    God Bless and keep you and all of yours
