I treat tbi as a phase of life. It may have slowed me down in some aspects; but has allowed me to stop and smell the roses also.

I still love life and nature; but had to learn to do certain things alone. Thank you for the friend request and keep on keeping on. :~)

Just trying to see what others are doing with strategies, etc. Thanks a bunch!
