I know I've said this before, but I can't express enough how mind blowing it is to me that I could be an inspiration to anyone, much less many people. You can DEFINITELY do this!

Amanda, thank you for sharing your story. It is inspiring and a reminder that I, too, can do it. On my tough days, I come back to success stories like yours to reinvigorate and inspire me to keep going.

So glad to have encouraging members like you on 3FC.

Sherrita - It was so helpful to have someone to go through with me. Thanks!

Gracesmommy - I try to be as helpful as I can, and appreciate that you found it useful. 3FC gave so much to me that I like to give back.
