God’s workmanship

I haven’t done much this week. Not only is it chemo week (my doctor wants to continue for probably another 8 months), my daughter and I have a cold. It is amazing how much attention she thinks she needs. Whenever I have energy (and sometimes when I don’t), I have … Continue reading
