This week is a favorite—little on the agenda—oh there’s football, family, and food. For me, I also dive into Macy’s Parade for the kid is me and the National Day Show, wondering “which one” will get the grand prize—I don’t own a dog now, but I love those sassy pooches as they parade around.
I’m grateful for the freedom we all have and often too assume .. Let AuthorU start with a thank you—we are grateful for your support, your comments, and your participation. We are grateful for wonderful friends and the many relationships that have evolved with them and their families.
