We live near a large Catholic high school and school just let out a few minutes ago. Since the parking lot is too small, many of the students park on our street, so it's fun to watch all the various types of kids go by. Even in a uniform of ma... Read more

I love reading other members blogs. They are filled with such enthusiasm and "gratitude attitudes" that I am encouraged, entertained and enthused. (If that's a word.) I have a friend who can't believe that I can relate to people I have never s... Read more
