  1. It's been too long since I've been with you, my dear sister. I still wish I could have seen you in October. I love all of these 'thoughts' about walking and paths of life...many are very profound. I am relaxed about the New Year, I hope to accomplish more this year than I ever have before. Goals to look forward to day by day.
    May you be well and get rested up from your last few weeks.
    I love you!


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. It is nice to know you have visited. Blessings in the journey, Rebecca
