  1. I am so grateful for you guys!
    My heart sank when I got 8 comments on my second-ever live powerpoint presentation. Three were negative, but not hateful. I had technical difficulties and it was a venue I’d never been to before. I wanted so much to do a good job. The positive ones were really positive though.
    Your encouragement means the world to us.
    Thank you,
