    Ok…so…at the beginning of the year, I was posting these for both myself and my mother-in-love (law). She is retired and not technologically savvy. I dropped out in September when school started back. Why? Probably Satan and his scheme of busyness. Anyhow, my precious mom-in-law kept doing her verses and sending them to me, and I have put off posting them until now. Sorry I’m such a loser! She won’t be able to come to the celebration anyway, but I wanted to keep my word to her that I would post them! Sorry they’re late!
