Fun Fact for the week: Last week isolated snow flurries and sleet was reported in a few spots in Southern Florida for only the second time in recorded history and the first time since 1977. Welcome to our world!
Quote for the week: What we are is God’s gift to us. What we become is our gift to God. I’m not sure where this quote came from, but it’s on a framed cross-stitch which Jeanne Berninger made for us for a wedding shower years ago. It reminds me to try to do something worthwhile every day.
Hope everyone is sticking to their New Year’s resolutions. My resolution for this year is to try to eat healthier and exercise; and I’ll begin as soon as I finish the rest of the Christmas cookies.
