Letter from the Publisher April 2022
"We have a Lord who is capable of crying with us and capable of walking with us in the most difficult moments of life." - Pope Francis
My heart is so heavy from the terrible human devastation happening in Ukraine as I write this. the losses we experienced here in America at this time last year seem like a vague dream compared to what is happening every minute now in Ukraine. All I can do is pray...and I am. Don't kid yourself, those little children in Ukraine could be our little grandchildren. Pray for peace...pray for a miracle!
I am still a very proctive person and I am following the regimen currently in place wearing mask indoors and in crowds, doing creative cooking, writing, reorganizing everything in my house, taking short walks outside and photographing flowers along the way, listening to music I love and dancing while no one is watching to keep my body and soul in shape. Slowly working again with new challenging assignment. Happy the covid numbers continue to drop in my home town.
