Congratulations, elsa! Best wishes for your mom to feel well soon. We're glad you've found us.

DC is a great place. Don't be a stranger. There's lots of fun, friendship and information to be had here.

wow, what a great question!! My daughter helping me cook this evening made me smile and my husband texting me that he loved me while we were out together last week.
Every time I get on here I like this place more and more. I am quickly finding out what great people are on here.

Was rummaging around in my purse today as I sat at the drive-thru at the bank. I discovered a pencil-printed note from my grandson, Seth.

I was in Atlanta visiting Seth and his family during Thanksgiving and, apparently, he stashed the note in my purse when I wasn't looking.

He's going to be 9-years-old on Valentine's Day and very smart.

The note said, "Grandma, this is for you to remember us. Love, Seth, Rhyley and Aiden. I love you."

How could I NOT smile.
