Share It With You Sunday…

I don’t usually post on Sundays, but I’ve decided that I’d like to try something different.  I have a friend who sends me the most wonderful emails sometimes.  Some of them really make me laugh, while others make me stop and think.  I’ve decided that I’d like to share a few of my favorite emails via this blog on Sundays.  Enjoy!
