Happy birthday! I wish you a wonderful year ahead. May all of your hopes and dreams come true.

Get well wishes to all of the sick and shut in. I hope you are well soon, up and about. You are in our prayers.

Thought for the week: Don’t worry what people say behind your back. They are the people who are the finding faults in your life instead of fixing the faults in their own life.


Pride is seldom delicate. It will please itself with very mean advantages. Show class, have pride and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself. Pride does not wish to owe and vanity does not wish to pay.
