My heart smiled all over again.

This story….and the ability to write it in a place I can find it again one day….

….is the reason why I sit at my computer and type out all the random words that make up this blog.

Thank you for reading and the encouragement and the joy that you bring to my life every day.

Happy random Saturday to you. ๐Ÿ™‚
