      Awe, Barbara, thank you for your sweet words. It was my hope in writing those words to myself that others would also gain something from it as well so they will not look back with regrets or remorse but to realize how strong they have been and how much they have GROWN!! Love to you!

    You don’t know me and I don’t know you but you have just spoke into my life with your words. Your letter to your past self sounds too familiar and I think it is what I needed hear. I ran across this page just by happenstance and got what I needed. Thank you for sharing. God bless
