I am in a state of shock and amazement right now. I can't believe that I actually touched people with my photos and writing. I have a funny feeling in my gut, a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye. I am totally amazed by the comments that were left for me that I never saw before today. Some of the comments date back to 2010 when I first started this. I would like to apologize for not responding then, I didn't see them. As I have said I am doing this to motivate myself and if it helps someone else along the way-great! I am new to this whole blogging thing and will start looking at the comments more now that I know how to navigate my own site better. I appreciate all of the comments and am humbled by your words. Your comments have given me MORE motivation to BE.
