Thank you for sharing your favorite poem for AWG April! I hadn't read that one before :)

Hello Yvonne, I hope your well TGIF

Here are some profile quotes, I did these for a swap and thought I would share them with you :)

We should all take lessons from crayons some are dull some are beautiful some are ugly some are bright but they all manage to live together in one box. ;-)

One bad apple may spoil the bunch, but people aren’t apples. Don’t let the poor choices of one person spoil the way you feel about all people. You’ll soon find that there are a lot of really awesome apples out there.

Thanks so much for the April wishes granted!
