Richer Than We Think

Richer Than We Think

  It was a fun time. My son and granddaughter fixed Mother’s Day lunch for all of us. Spaghetti, hot rolls, salad, dessert, served up with a big dash of caring. I loved it! These times of togetherness are priceless. I couldn’t put a monetary value on them. I’m rich in having my family around […]
