  3. I opened this window because I wanted to check out the crochet pattern - I'm really not interested in your prayers and sermons.

  4. I am offended by the comment of anonymous--you are not required to look at the web site, but if you do, you take what you get--it's not as if you are paying for it. I find the kindly thoughts and prayers to be wonderfully caring and warming. Thanks for that!!!

Like most everybody else today, I've got a ton of things to do, but it was nice to meet you while taking a quick break! I'm now a follower, and look forward to visiting again!
