Surgery Day – Part 2

read

Well! I did not mean to leave you hanging since I wrote Part 1 of this story! My sincerest apologies. Just when I thought I was out of the woods, things came crashing down again. Oh, you just have no idea. But you will. It’s been quite a ride. So while things are good, (and […]

read

Hello friends! It’s been awhile.

I’ve started a few new good habits lately. One is walking every evening. I put the bike riding away for a spell because I wanted to see if walking would offer a few more health benefits. So far I do feel stronger, and have a little more spring in my step! Yay me! I think […]
