I have always had a fascination and high regard for words. I enjoy Scrabble and play online with three friends, two of whom I knew and one I found on the Scrabble site I use. Lynda is from Houston, Texas and it's remarkable how much we have in common. We have been Scrabbling for almost 4 years now and I have had the great privilege of following her and her husband Jerry's journey to adopt their daughter. Latisha was barely in her teens when she came to join them and I have loved watching their family grow and take shape. I would so much love to meet them all.

But I digress...back to words...

This weeks word of the week is...
