    Thought for the week: Nobody’s perfect, so give yourself credit for everything you’re doing right and be kind to yourself when you struggle.

    I really enjoyed the articles and pictures of the phone exchange to smartphone. I also enjoyed the Nationwide Uniform article. I worked there 35 years ago for three and one-half years.

    I enjoyed this past weekend with my Kyknitwits sisters for our Spring Retreat in Pineville, KY.
