For those whose dreams are bright enough to shine, even at night;
This is for you.
Your dream is one day closer to becoming a reality,
Look at this… It is possible
First I would like to thank my Heavenly Father, for without Him I would not have the ability to write my stories. I would not have the ability to think, to breathe, to live and to imagine. I am so grateful to know You. My God is my everything. Without Him nothing is possible, and with Him everything is.
To my Grandmother who has been gone from this earth for nearly 16 years now, but whose words continue to resonate with me wherever I go. “You can do anything you want to do, and you can be anything you want to be.” She told me that until I believed it, and she was the first person I ever wrote anything for. Thank you Gee-Mommie, for giving me enough words of encouragement to last a lifetime, your words are powerful and meaningful even today. You gave me permission to dream big and believe in myself.
To my family and friends who took the time to read my story, offer me honest feedback and become unpaid editors, thank you. I have a great support system. To Karlas (the very first person to read the book), Tracey (my wonderful sister who read it 3 or 4 times), Shawn, Choiya, Kecia, and Renea, who I’m sure all had much better things to do, but still took the time to read my book, I am forever grateful to all of you.
