How are you feeling? Are you getting that cold/flu put behind you? Been thinking of you dear girl.
Thanks for organizing another fun swap!

Whoo hoo, I made this one!! I am up and about a little more with each passing day! I am thanking God for all the sweet blessings in my life! I am so thankful for the sweet friends I have met in the primitive blog world! I know that you girls are praying for me because I can feel them each day! The pain is always there and I just try to keep doing something each day!
