Wow! So many wonderful exciting new adventures & happenings! I'm so happy for Katherine with her new presidential status! And I must say, I'm quite curious about the new couple - looking forward to finding out more...
I must say this actually reminds me of my Pa - the bittersweet-ness. My Pa always loved bittersweet. So I guess it was only fitting that many sweet things happened after he passed away. I actually lost him, my papa Bill, and my Granny all within 8 months. And less than after we lost Granny, we found out my Aunt Tanya was going to have triplets! It was so very bittersweet...
May there be many, many more sweetnesses in Katherine's life! And thank you for reminding me of the sweetnesses in my own life.
Take care and God Bless!
All my Love,

Love & hugs to your both,

Hi Dani

I am so saddened and sorry to hear about Chase. I will be praying for Chase's family and all of those who mourn his loss. Such a horrible, horrible tragedy which is devastating.

I agree with Katherine, Chase would be looking down on his loyal and loving friends and I am sure he has something to do with the sweetness. A big congratulations to dear Katherine, what wonderful news.

Congratulations to your daughter. I am hoping all are doing well with the sadness that has befallen them. # 5 on my truth list did happen to me. I was learning to play gold many years ago and hit my own physician in the leg. Thank goodness he was not angry with me. Blessings

So glad to see happy things happening over there.
