When I decided to re-create my website, I considered it very important to write a 'thank you note' to all those who have helped and continue to help me become the woman I am today. My gratitude to you is magnanimous because you have guided me specifically or in ways unbeknownst to you. Many of you may be unaware of the profound impact you had on me. In some ways, I was not even clear what you were doing at the time, but only gained the words to express how I felt and how I thought after the interaction. In addition, if you need words of encouragement and to know that you are beloved, you can always return here even after my number is called. Yes, that may sound ominous but the reality is - it is the truth.
