I wish I could say this piece is original. Well, I’m sure it is but not by me.
Yvonne emailed it to me the other night. I searched online and could not identify an author to whom I could give credit.
I’m sharing it with you, first because it is too cute not to, and secondly because it is so true. Enjoy.
