Thankful for Our Life in the Country

Thankful for Our Life This evening I am reflecting on today and being thankful for our life in the country.  Earlier this evening, I was thinking of Faith, when my husband and I were spending time with Joy.  We were having such a wonderful time together.  I found myself wondering about what Faith would be like if she were here today.  I miss her so much and know I will continue to do so as life goes Read More
