Back to Class Again

After 2 months of recovering from her latest bout of diverticulitis, my mom finally made it back to her Parkinson’s exercise class. Everyone there was so happy to her. She took things at her own pace, but kept going for the whole hour. One more time, she amazes me. I Found God today as my […]
