  23. Thank you all for the very kind words and comments. It is very heart warming for me - and I appreciate it a great deal. I am sorry I have not commented sooner as I have been having some eye issues so I have been trying to stay off the computer as that really seems to aggravate it. I am hoping to get a good night's rest tonight and be back to normal tomorrow!!!

    Thanks again all - you have given me a lift when I needed one! I feel very blessed and lucky to have won this challenge when I am in awe of the talent here!!!! I oftentimes feel like I am not worthy!!! LOL...
