To all my dear friends out there...we are still alive! I am still dealing with some deeply personal challenges that are consuming a great deal of my time. I wish I could talk more freely but it is still very raw right now. I miss getting to read every one's blogs and continue to pray for all my dear friends and your children. I am sad to admit that I missed marking the anniversary of my blog, last month but it's just a date after all. Faith is doing OK, she is still full of smiles and joy every day. She is my bright light that keeps me going...Please continue to pray for me...strength and wisdom and God's protection.
