  1. Do you have a “collection” of all your “Laugh a Little” cartoons and your “quotes”? I would love to have a little book full of things to smile about. Life is hard and laughter helps a lot. Thanks for including these in your wrap-ups.

    1. Hi Kayla,
      This is great feedback. I wasn’t sure if the laugh section was helpful, so glad to hear it is. We don’t have a book but might be able to put together a collection. You have inspired me to bring a little more comedy to our work, wheels in motion on this now 🙂
