Thank you for sharing so much of your life story Moonlustere. I really appreciate your honesty and openness. It sounds as if you have had many challenging situations in your life, and yet you have still been able to maintain a sense of who you truly are. It seems that the lessons your great-grandmother taught you have stood you in very good stead. I hope that in time I too may be able to experience a life that is more in balance. Of course I first need to read and learn more about what that means. Thank you so much for your suggestions and thoughts, they are really helpful.
