“Sometimes in life things don’t work out the way you plan. People change; things go wrong, and you find out that life gets harder as you get older. So cherish the memories, laugh as much as you cry; forget the bad and remember the good. And don’t let the moments that meant the most to you fade away…”                                                            When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

    Liz, I always enjoy you Devos but the ones about moving and the one that Abigail wrote was so sweet and to come from a teenager was wonderful. I hope to see or even stay with you and Jay again would be a joy. Love, Thelma

    • Thanks, my friend for your encouraging comment. So glad you could get a glimpse into Abigail’s life. Her post really touched me when I needed it. By all means, plan on staying with us when you’re in town. Love you, Liz
