i've just learned about this beautiful woman's predicament. this photo was taken on layla's wedding day, in happier times. since then, she has been inundated with health issues and is in need of some medical procedures to assess her current condition. but without insurance, she will not get the medical attention she needs. i do not know her, but how awful to have to live with such pain and see no hope in sight. this website, Operation Layla, is a place where other bloggers and blog readers can donate money to help. please consider helping if you can. thanks...joanne
i live in a small town, in a small house that seems to be falling down around me and my family. a four year old grandson,a basset hound and two cats add to the chaos that is my life. i do try to embrace it and to remember that there are folks far worse off than me. i have been wanting to start a gratitude journal for a while now,so i am going to list three things every day for which i am grateful.
