Thank you so much for your kind words, Kimberley. I am glad you like my work. It’s what has gotten me through the past year. Most people don’t understand that my grandchildren moving away was more like losing my children since I helped to raise them for more than 7 years. They moved in with me when one was 3 and the other was one. Now, the children that I saw every day for years live almost 1,000 miles away. This past year has been one of the hardest on my heart.
