I am also thankful for the incredibly beautiful women in my life who inspire me, encourage me and support my dreams. I cannot possibly name everyone, but to start, I thank Tony for being a wonderful friend, sister in Christ and prayer warrior, Nicole who opens her heart and home to me and allow me to sit with her and just unload the burdens of my heart, and giving me a safe place to just come and be real about my struggles and who simply comforts me with her smile, Jill who is smart, strong and courageous and who is real with me, believes in me and encourages me to follow my dreams, Ann who is a mother, sister in Christ and friend to me whenever I have needed her, Misti a beautiful sister in Christ who always touches my heart with kind words and encouragement, Ladora who is the big sister I never had and who makes me cry just hearing her voice on the other end of the phone, Nina who reached out and showed support and understanding when I needed it, Lenora who encourages me spiritually and talks to me when I can't sleep or just to make sure I made it home safely, Felica who is a wonderful sister in Christ who has prayed with me and for me more times than I can count and who never forgets me, Cara who is kind and lovely and such a tender soul and gift, KP who makes me laugh and supports me and cheers for me to succeed, Blanca who is persistent and just wants to be there for me, Kari just being Kari with such a beautiful heart, compassion and sweet presence, Joey who believes in me and supports my dreams, and those I won't forget - Faye, LaNelle, Debbi, Latoya, Angela, Carea, Kethelyne, Tammy, Paula, and others.
