Mudpuddles and Skooters

Life is not where we expected to be. Chronic diseases and changes in employment really puts a huge damper on life. Family, good food, and an overabundance of love sweet love has helped. We had a nice Easter day together. It started out rough but ended with the three of us at home. So why […]
