Courtney

I recently attended the 2012 Churchwide Gathering of Presbyterian Women – a great event filled with the opportunity to meet new folks and to hang out with long-time friends. For me, that included Courtney Payne – who is recovering from an auto accident. Thanks to Stephanie Quintana for the photo.

See you – and Courtney – along the Trail.

“Why doesn’t she leave?”

Shouldn’t people ask:
“Why doesn’t he stop hitting her?”
