I am supposed to write in my blog about what encourages me. This has taken a lot of thought and what I have come up with is very simple, so don't know why I had to think so long. My family encourages me, namely my beautiful, empathetic daughter. She always has a word of encouragement and the very best advice. Right at this moment I feel very blessed to be living near her so that I can see her whenever I want to. Being in person is much better than the phone.
