          I'm loving this! It does, however, make me stop and think about something though. You know how you feel sometimes when life is going along smoothly and suddenly your world is turned upside-down? Maybe somewhere up there in the big picture of life we're in a giant snowglobe and God likes to 'mix it up' occasionally by shakin' us around!

            Reenie, that was great, scared the **** out of some of my fellow workers when it came on, but it was good.
            Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
            So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
            Good luck and stay well.

              I think you're right about us living in a snowglobe ourselves...

              'Hey, up there, do you think you could give it a rest for a while? I've had enough shaking for one year.' LOL.
