Janis,
Thank you so very much for your wonderfully-kind words on my blog -sometimes I feel like I'm pouring my heart and soul into my writing, only to wonder if anyone actually reads it. Your message about the chair really blessed me tonight. Thank you. I'm going to check out your blog now as well. It looks wonderful and your writing style is very much something I enjoy. I hope you and your family have a most blessed Thanksgiving.
Kindest regards,
Linda
