As the year draws to a close, I am thankful for my children, my family, and for each and every one of my readers. I am signing off until after the holidays. 2013 will bring some interesting topics, more on my journey as a single parent, and how I work tirelessly to make life better for my children and children like my children. My message will remain the same, nothing in this life is accomplished without hard work and sacrifice. Blessings to you and yours this Holiday Season. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy New Year!
