(My Grandma thought she’d type out some “one-liners” to share with me on March 3, 2006. I wanted to share them with you today! She still uplifts me with her words, and she’s been gone from this earth for years! The photos are of her in my dorm room in college being her awesome, fun self, and of me putting my hair on her head for a laugh on her 90th birthday! She was SO FUN! I love you Grandma! Thank you for a heritage of faith, joy, humor and love! – Kristin)

I may not be perfect in this lifetime, nor do I expect to be, but that does not stop me from trying!
