Oh my gosh I was so excited to see you are posting again. I have thought of you so often. I don't have a Facebook account so wasn't able to keep up with what you were doing.

I am so glad you are doing so well!


I couldn't see an option on Facebook for sending a friend request, I'm "following" but don't see anything recent posted.
So thankful to see this update.
