    Your home is so beautiful and peaceful looking every time I see it! It looks a sanctuary for meditation and healing. Your quotes are perfect too! Yesterday is heavy, put it down. I think we all need to read that one from time to time!

    I have been collecting your sayings that are either humorous or inspiring to put in a picture frame that has multiple
    openings. The one “you don’t know fear” gave me a real chuckle because we have all been there one time or another.
    Thanks again for my laugh today.
