I understand not liking hail. It can be pretty damaging! My sister lives in an area where they had hail storm with pieces that were huge. Her car ended up with dents all over! Crazy!
I'm so glad that you're interested in…"

I hope you…"

What a wonderful gift - to knit items that will bless others! And it's a win-win because that creative art is soothing for you.
I'm so glad you've been able to visit our city. The Market is fun! And now with the…"
"Thanks for joining us, Cheryl!
That's awesome that you and your hubby are faithful in reading your Bible in the morning. We find so much hope in God's Word, and I believe hope is key to feeling optimistic."
