My Progress and My Thanks
Lurking as I do, I’ve been watching your journey (lately and for many years) and hoping the things all come together. This list is amazing because of the people. It’s great to see you back and going for it. Congratulations on your progress, keep learning every day.
Speaking from experience, when things are darkest, there’s always a light somewhere so long as we open our eyes and look around. You’ve had the courage to keep persevering, that’s probably the most important thing of all. Then the courage to say Help. Well done.
