Oh, Lissy! Your sweet note brought a tear to my eye, and caused my heart to swell up and run over! I love to write, and share my life here on my blog, and knowing that I might inspire anyone along the way is the happiest sort of overwhelming joy, that I cannot quite put into words. Thank you ever so much! I hope you do continue to find jewels and make your home a haven of happiness, Tracey
