" Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to the end, requires some of the same courage which a soldier needs ".
You have had an immense journey over the past year, that I don't think any words can articulate.
Your courage to carry forward, despite the pain you have endured, you have wiped your tears, and moved forward.
Despite the backs that turned, that once said they were a friend. Holding your head high above their hateful chatters,
you have moved forward without a foul word of them.
Feeling so alone for quite some time,
new Kindreds have found you, I don't think by chance. I believe the Lord has sent his army to you,they keep coming like magical stars that shine so bright to help light the path.
This past weekend, for those few hours we spent creating the awesome gifts, I saw that gleam in your eye, the smile of pure happiness.
Along this life changing journey of yours, I have witnessed the love, courage and strength you carry close to your heart.
Miss Mandi, I am so very proud of you!
Rock on with your love, passion and zest for life, this is your chapter!
