    I’m so glad I stumbled upon your list, Jill. It matches so well with my own, inspires me and makes me remember why it was always so much fun to be around you.
    Sounds like your life is full to bursting with good things, challenges, and blessings. May it always be so.
    Much love at this dark time of the year. You are a ray of sunshine.

    Thanks for sharing your list Jill! You’re an amazing Mom, sister, daughter, friend, etc. I think you for introducing Katie to us. We enjoy our relationship and appreciate all she does for TeoTios. I applaud your success at being a single parent and taking time to spend with your family. Grandma’s are the best and your g-kids will remember the time you spend with them always. Truly special. Hope you have a wonderful holiday and New Year!
