Loved your interview, thanks for sharing. I just discovered your blog and am having a good time tracking back through all your posts...it should only take me a year or so! Thanks for being a presence on the web.

Cheryl, I loved the interview! I got all teary at that wonderful story about your nick-name. How SWEET!

I just want to say how much I enjoy your writing. They way you write has a way of reaching out and grabbing me! It feels as if you're having a conversation and it draws me in! Thanks so much. Your blog is such a wonderful lift and (most often) a laugh in my day! God bless you as you have blessed me!
