Uh-Oh....the Big 5-0!!!

Whew!  The last three months since I made it over to The Porch to post have been a blur.....of business, activity, no time....

But, with my BIG BIRTHDAY lurking around the corner - in less than four hours, to be exact - I felt compelled to make the time to get a new post up here at Janie's Porch.

The big FIVE-OH!!!!

Take the time to stop and count your Blessings today!
