Thank you for helping out my family when we really needed it. It was several years ago; however, I never did thank you.

Like the blog. Great stuff. I have a favorite pen, but I can never find it. I get a new favorite pen and I can never find that one. My favorite pen lasts about a week.

12 hymns? Do children's hymns count? If not, I have a ways to go.
