      Thank you so much. I just try and write my thoughts and I figure if people truly like what I write, they will come back. The only goal I had when I began writing, was to help just 1 person. 1 person to feel even a fraction better about themselves and their life from the words I write. It has never been about money or popularity for me.

      Have a wonderful holiday!
