Ha!

HA!!

A BLUE!!!

*smile*


Thanks, folks!


I love this!


I'm ...having a "down day" (a "down day" for Lydia is not as bad as "down days" for most... I'm a "Life is Good" kinda gal... but... a sweet friend was diagnosed with Breast Cancer today... I'm ... distraught.)

Please pray for her healing.
Martina McBride's Music Video ... Watch... It's palatable, I promise. *grin*


And... THANKS BUNCHES for only ONE vote of four or less!

Life is GOOD... even when it's not!




Thanks bunches for my BLUE!!

Tell everyone who's important to you that.. they're important to you.

Tomorrow might not come.

*smile*


ETA: six months later: Chemo seems to be working... tough times... but working! I am thankful.
