Thank you so much to the people who nominated me for these 2 awesome and humbling awards. I am healed by my writing and my blog. I appreciate the comments, views and words of encouragement I hear from people I know.

Thank you all for reading about my travels and my widow challenges. Through my adventures and my experience I hope to encourage women and men in similar situations to embrace the pain and then use it to motivate toward joy and happiness.
