 Smiley 

Thanks, everyone!

I am truly humbled.

My mother always taught me that when I was celebrating a special event, starting something new, or gathering with friends, I had to (first pray and then) be a "hostess" of sorts.  So, every year for my birthday whether I was in elementary school, or teaching school, I always brought cupcakes for everyone.

Therefore, please help yourselves to a virtual cupcake.  They do have 1 calorie a piece, so, be careful....and remember to thank the Lord for what you are about to receive before wolfing them down!



....thanks everyone for all your support and sweet comments.  They mean a lot.

I pray that with God's help and everyone's support I will be able to fulfill my new responsibilities successfully!

BIG HUG to you all!!!

Playing that game would certainly help someone like me with fasting.  Liza does not strike me as the kind of person who gets her daily jollies from giving people the green meatball.  I would be going a long time between shots.
