It was a very long day and before I turn in for the night, I have to say how grateful I am for this sacrifice. It’s not easy, but I spend every moment thinking of my future and appreciate every opportunity given to me to reach my full potential.

I had hoped to hear the S.E. Illinois Family Living Magazine was out today but, as always happens in the publishing world, things run down to the wire to reach a deadline. When it releases I can’t wait to show you.

I am grateful that tomorrow is Friday and that the work week is drawing to an end. I wouldn’t trade it for my future success for any reason. I know where I am going to go and am working to make things happen! If you have a goal, hang in there! You never know when day will arrive that everything will change!
