I don't know why it was suddenly decided to pick on Paula, but right now she's having the last laugh. Her book--not due out till October--is #1 on Amazon. When there are so many real problems in our world and nation right now, a decision not to forgive someone who asked for forgiveness for an offense 30 years ago seems "mighty small potatoes--with lots of cream and butter.)"
I had a mild case of shingles many years ago and have seen family members (my father-in-law and my son and my sister-in-law) really suffer with them. At our doctor's suggestion, my husband and I got the shot several years ago (with no problems). I figure 50 percent chance of being free of them for us is better than 0 percent.
While my aching joints have not been thrilled with all the rain we've had, I'm loving our beautiful green North Carolina.
Hope all my friends on the porch have a blessed weekend.
