  7. Okay, Mona...

    I just typed step by step directions explaining how to create a link using the anchor and it didn't work! Blogger doesn't like the broken steps!

    So, I removed that confusing post and here is my suggestion; I learned how to create the links from googling "how to create an anchor in HTML". It really is very simple to do so don't hesitate to try!

    Hope that helps,
    From Our Front Porch Looking In

  8. Hi Mona,
    Great answers!

    I really appreciate it.
    I look forward to getting to know you better as well!
    Blogging is so rewarding isn't it? I have only been at it less than six months and I already cherish many new friendships being made.

    You're welcome to visit me anytime and to follow along if you would like.

    I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day.
    ~Melissa :)

  23. Hi,
    I found your blog from The Crowned Casa so came by to say hello. I read you are the mother of 7 children. I grew up one of 7 children! I have 4 sisters and two brothers. I loved being part of a large family, lots of fun and never dull. I like your attitude, you roll with life and I can appreciate that. I hope your son is doing well with his kidney transplant. I attended the transplant games last summer. A friend of mine with a double lung transplant won the gold medal for racquetball. I am going to have a look around your site. Drop by mine anytime; it is great to meet new friends. ~Cathy~
