Thank you so much Mayra! It is so hard to put into words. It's tough to realize that getting out of our own way is necessary. Beginning to let go and opening myself up to Faith is a difficult, delicate and beautiful thing. There is such enormous growth, peace and love in Spirituality. Your words mean so much. JoAnn xo
