    I feel GREAT, that I was choosen. Thank You so much for this honor. It just tickles me pink n purple to see this cartoon of me. I am so Proud of Your Children, they’re just fabulous I tells ya, Big big HUGS for all.
    Our recovery workouts are every day, and sometimes rather hillarious, other times vigerously challenging. Every day we get stronger and stronger, really until the worst of it is so in the past, Its like looking in a dark cave where ya left the crappy stuff any way and who needs it.
    Spread the LOVE & Laughter too!
