I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.

Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

  6. Thanks for dropping by and nudging me to join your Inspire Me Monday. I will try to remember to join in next week, because this week I simply don’t have time to visit others. And it would not be fair to join a blog hop and not visit anyone! But soon, I hope to be a bit less busy. Thanks for being there for me, though.
