2010 started out promising and it is also ending with a great note. Looking back we cannot have gotten through without the love and grace of God. It would have been IMPOSSIBLE. We have a great support system and God had purposely put people in our lives and that has been a great blessing. We have a supportive family and a praying and caring church family, Pastor and Pastor's wife and Bishop and Sis Bobbie (Sis Bobbie love you!!! You are a blessing in my life) and just a great group of friends. I am grateful and thankful for that. Family and friends that has stood by us through thick and thin.
