    Wow Fortune! Really! God has Blessed you with such a trueness of spirit! Your openness, honesty, & willingness to make urself vulnerable is a breath of freah air & an inspiration in itself! I pray that you continue to seek God in all tou do and find All that you are destined to find in this life!! Im not sure if you remember the name of my business bc you probably just have me in your phone like most of my clients, (Michelle Massage). Lol! But its “A Divine Appointment” & I believe thats what finding your blog was for me today! I found your blog by checking my instagram for my daughter to c if the picture she posted of my granddaughter was uploaded. I wld not have checked it otherwise & Truly, I am so Blessed that i I did bc while I was there I just started scrolling through & there you were!! It immediately put a smile on my face! Reading your blog, I was So Inspired by…”you” & as I read, I remembered what a sincere, authentic young lady you were & are!! I remembered all the Awesome conversations we wld have during your appointment! Im so Blessed to see that you are doing well! It made me realize how much I miss seeing you! I’ll b praying for you & be checking in on your blog!! Hope to see you this summer when your in Jersey!! God Bless!
