Y'all are just so encouraging to me. I tell ya, I had been really hesitant about writing so personally because I do not want to offend or scare anyone. However, y'all have responded well to the overflow of my heart and I thank you! No one has been critical or threatening. Thank you for allowing me to strive to encourage other Christians to speak out about their "perfeck" lives, testifying to God's prescence in their lives and also to end the sterotypes about us being exempt from depression, chronic illnesses, hurt feelings, sorrow, crying and the many other things there are.
