  1. Melissa,
    You really hit it out of the park with this one !!! My God, the inspiration and enthusiasm for life is leaping off the page at me 🙂

    I laughed when I read your husband’s response to the values exercise. Mine said the very same thing, and then he did it anyway and got a lot from it. It takes a strong woman to lead the way and honour her values when her environment may not be totally in agreement.

    So do a little happy dance my friend, because you are a strong, inspiring woman!

    1. I am honored to have a comment from you Sandi! My heart is dancing!! I have been walking on air since I posted last night. This was the hardest prompt to write and took the longest, but I am so pleased with the way it came out!!! Bless you!

  2. I am so impressed and proud to know you. This is my first time following or commenting on a blog. I felt it was important to support your beauftiful writings. Please continue and so will I.

    1. Thank you Eileen! I am proud to know you as well! And I promise to continue to write and give you an opportunity to be a blog follower as long as I can count on your honest opinions. I appreciate your advice and value your input!

  3. Melissa, you make us proud! I only wish I could articulate how I feel the way you do. I will settle for reading you. I have read this several times and each time something else you said jumps out at me. That tells me I should keep reading it many more times. I am very proud of the way you have been able to handle the personal tragedies in your life and now I know that this is why. You and your boys should give a group hug for your New Mexico cousins.
    Love you so much.
    Marie Elena Sedillo

    1. Thank you Marie!! I love you and Frances and allof my New Mexico cousins so very much! Stay tuned because I plan to write about why I consider Albuquerque to be my “home town”! Hugs and kisses back to each and every one of you!

  4. Melissa, this was lovely. I believe as mothers, wives &the co-workers we are sisters. It is important for us to share our thoughts &the feelings. I think its so special that you & Lito discuss this to. Bless you for sharing and opening my eyes to our special needs loves & powers. I look forward to your next lovely post.

  5. This is so awesome and I’m very happy that you’ve found your creative outlet! I’ve always been in admiration of all that you do, all that you give, and all that you inspire! You are truly amazing. I love you and I miss you and I know that you are busy being a mother, wife, and now writer. Exceptional!!!

    1. The feeling is mutual Lynn! You know the feeling in your heart when someone you care about gives you that extra tight and extra long hug, when there are no words to say? That is how I feel right now. Thank you my dear friend! I love you!

  6. Melissa,
    From the first day we met I knew what an amazing person you were—and feel so blessed to call you “friend” and even “family.” Even though we don’t see each other much, you bring “light” to my life when we do get to meet. You are so blessed with your God-given talents—”thank you” for sharing them with your friends.
