Twenty years ago this week, it was reported that Brock Sanders celebrated his fourth birthday on Dec. 8 with a dinosaur party theme. His brothers, Chase and Drew, along with other family members helped to make this a special birthday. He is the son of Scott and Julie Sanders.
Thought for the week: how to be happy all throughout the year. Keep your heart free from hate, your mind free from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, Fill your life with love, scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. These are the tried links in contentment's golden chain.
