  5. made the move from southern CA to the beautiful mountains of CO
  6. given our pets from shelters an awesome home and family
  7. made it on to Design Teams
  8. raising kids who love to read

Wow, sorry to hear about #1... I too had a miscarraige before we had our daughter. You are a strong person to have gone thru so much and yet have such a great outlook now. You SHOULD be proud!

Oh Tonia, I had no idea about the harships you've experienced, my heart goes out to you. You're doing amazingly well and I'm not surprised because you're an incredible human being. Thanks for sharing your heart. HUGS!
