Hearing that child that tells you at the beginning of the year, ".I hate reading." Tell you at the end of the year, "Wow, I didn't know there were good books out there, you made a reader out of me." The best thing is teaching a child to see the potential in themselves and then watching them bloom.(less)

Things have been going great. I followed in your footsteps. I realized I could not keep up with the challenges. I use them to read books but don't post my progress. It was too much. I also set up a writing site and I've finished editing first manuscript and am working on manuscript 2 and 3. You have been such an inspiration to me. Thank you for your friendship.
