LOVE the legos picture!!
The Legos picture made me lol. 🙂 I guess turning 100 must come with a price. ha. I really like “Trouble, We’ve Been Expecting You” because it fits in perfectly with my “Welcome” theme of the year. And become I fear getting Alzheimer’s the “What I’ll Say to My Children” is making me think a little differently about it…. Thanks for sharing my prayer post!
Regarding the LEGOS age limit. I’d lie about my age. So funny!
I appreciate the “What I’ll Say” post. My family is dealing with it now. It’s good to be reminded that though someone with the disease is not who they once were, they are still someone of value that may have more “quality of life” than we can see, or than they can communicate.
