  2. Morning Rebecca,
    It was so great to hear from you, and I just had
    to write and say how wonderful it is to know that
    you are rejoicing in good things that are happening for me, cause you know what???
    Unfortunately, that is a rare thing....should not
    be, but unfortunately, is!!
    What a blessing you are to me, and I am sure to all who know you.
    It is fun rejoicing with those who rejoice, much better than the attitude "well, I wish that was happening to me!!" Which is a lot of times what is said.
    So thanks, that is a joy to know,
    No time to read but just had to let you know hon,
    Love and Blessings,

    Will be around next week to visit as usual.
    Have a good one.
