thunder_stormNo matter how brave, strong or levelheaded we are, sometimes we all get scared. – Author Unknown

    Nice reminder, Richard. “This too shall pass”. Have to jump on the same boat as Denise and EJ, it does help that we have the Caregiving family through those times. BTW love the pic, an original?
