Happy Birthday, Jacquelyn!

In her own words....
"I was talking to an older pastor’s wife a couple of years ago, and her advice was to 'run the last lap the best'. And that is what I want to do. I want to live each day intentionally and with the full knowledge that every day is a gift. I want to keep a short account of offenses. I want to leave some kind of legacy that will matter to someone."

"In two days I will be old enough to collect Social Security."  (Posted two days ago.)
