Phyllis Jean, a difficult task you assumed my friend. But I do like what you have rendered here for examination. Nasty old "X", a tough one in any situation. Glad it was you and not I to struggle with that one. Joy, love and peace be with you. Jon Michael

First of all, I love the title, "The Heart Primer - International Version" We all need a heart primer!
A really nice, cheerful, wise primer it is .
Now for the X, how about, "X is don't put all your X in one basket; reach out and touch somebody." LOL
