  1. Thank you so much for the link!

  2. Oh thanks so much for the link to “What the Nanny saw”! I really enjoyed it!

  3. “What the nanny saw” was a lovely reminder that we all have art within us, whether its validated or appreciated by anyone else in our own lifetimes (or ever). Really loved 12 words and letter to my teenage daughter too…I have two young daughthers and I am right in the thick of it…Thank you for some things to remember and to impart!

  4. Thanks for your inspirational article, I know that you had touch the heart and life of many people just like the way you had touch mine. You greatly inspires me to do blogs relevantly and even make an article that is totally free from grief and even bitterness. I am not use to express my though on writing and even don’t put my heart into it that’s may be the reason why I always been rejected with my employers. I take life so bitter and even so fragile with some issues that affects my work and specially my family. I guess I just need to unwind and take a break for a moment.
