Glynn, there is so much here! You constantly amaze me with the ground you cover online - and granted, you're not chasing two little ones or trying to keep up with a photography business. I am a little jealous of your time, but I am so glad you have it so that I can come here and find what you've found.

Thank you for including my post - it's one of the hardest I've written. I am glad you thought it worth including.
