don't know about you, but I spend way too much time on my computer. Often when I'm working at my desk I see people walking along the creek, or jogging, or biking, and I say to myself, "Get off your dupa, Lynn, and get outside!!

hanks for your visit and prayers for my mom. Time will heal her fractured back and for now, she has pain meds, a back brace, and the love and support of her family. Just one more test to rule out cancer in her spine and then we'll really be able to breathe easy. Thanks again!
