Thanks so much for the kind words of encouragement and the Goodie! I know you'll do a fine job in the new position. I've never heard of it..so much intervention early, though, should make such a difference in young lives! I hope it's a great fit. Good luck with the college 'child.' It can be a hard adjustment. I hope that works out, too!

“How would your life be different if…You didn’t allow yourself to be defined by your past?
Let today be the day…You stop letting your history interfere with your destiny, and awaken to the opportunity to release your greatest self.”
Thank you for the sunshine goodie. I could sure use some sunshine this week...its been rainy and gloomy almost every day so far. But other than the weather, I've been having a good week and I hope you are too.

Thanks for the Spark Goodie. If you ever need to see your WI Dr again let me know. I live in the SE corner of the State. I know someone with severe nut allergies. Just getting ice cream served with the same scoop that was used with the "wrong" kind will put them in the hospital. Take care of your self.
