Your smile is evident in your writing! 2021 is looking to be an exhilarating year for you!


I to have been following you for years and it was wonderful to read a post from you. What good news to hear that you will have your own place. You are such an inspiration. Your hard work has paid off.

I have had enough of 2020 as has everyone else. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year. I know I am looking forward to a New Year.

How exciting! I so glad for you. You are indeed an inspiration! I am so happy for you!!!


It's so uplifting to hear some positive news this difficult year. Congratulations on finding your own place and becoming an Arizona convert. You actually have the best of both worlds: the warmth and sunshine of the desert and the the opportunity to visit Colorado and enjoy the lush landscaping and cooler temps when you see your sister.

Have a very Merry Christmas and the most blessed New Year.


Congrats! That is truly wonderful news. I've been following your story for years and years and have found much inspiration. So happy for you! Happy New Year in your new home!
