Searching for new baby cards to send to a neighbor’s daughter, I came upon Design 592AR – Precious Footprints New Baby Card, which made my heart stop. You see, the front of this card shows two little, gold-embossed footprints…so cute and tiny! What caused my reaction was that this past weekend I started to do […]

When I was a little girl, my mother not only taught my siblings and me manners, she insisted on us using them. From as far back as I can remember, she never let us get away without using them. Oh, Dad contributed to these life lessons as well, but it was Mom who was the […]
