To everything in a person's life, there is a season. I am hopeful that this is the END to what seems to have been one giant season but, upon reflection, seems to have been many seasons all piled on top of one another.
In my last blog I came to tell you of my newly-developed heart problems that culminated in the implanting of a pacemaker. Things were going swimmingly after a few weeks and life seems to have settled down into a certain rhythm of a sort…Continue
The last time I blogged, I anticipated there was nothing more to add to my story. Even though it's past time I get a little "dull" in my life. it's not quite there yet.
