I’m constantly inspired by wonderful people and my beautiful family. Most of the stories I write have a piece of them in it. I think its becomes more than a story at that point and becomes something special. I truly hope you enjoy what you read and it brings joy and hope to your families.
I want to thank you once again for taking this journey with me. I hope that as we travel together down this road we can encourage each other and learn from one another along the way. Remember that you are loved and you are enough.
