Although I went through a lot growing up, I'm grateful for my life and my experiences. They've made me who I am and I think/hope they have helped me have more compassion for others than I would have had otherwise. Our life is what we make of it, regardless of our circumstances.
Again, thank you for reaching out to me and expressing your thoughts and encouragement. It made my day!
