  1. WOW that was interesting! Your always full of knowledge. I always feel misunderstood by most people, but luckily I have a good core of a couple I trust with my life. By the way, I know you have labs and I just did a post about their history if you wanted to check it out! :)

    • I had no idea about the history of my beloved labs it was fascinating! This was a very ingenious idea and you should take pride in yourself. I was born with a cleft palate subsequently have a speech impediment which leads to misunderstanding so I’m happy to read that you have supportive people in your life. Isolation is painful!

  2. It is a quite interesting sentiment and with all we are surrounded with we should be feeling to conquer the world with the love of those that make us feel appreciated!
