Hello again and happy New Year!! I hope that you and your loved ones will share a wonderful, safe, and prosperous New Year!! It has been some time since I last posted. Quite frankly, there was little activity other than submitting applications; a daunting task to be sure. Many voiced their views on the application process and offered sincere encouragement to continue. For this I am grateful; certainly there were times of abandoning that process. I was asked if I would write something to update my status. I have always believed that if my writing can assist anyone while traveling this journey, I am most humbled to do so.
