      • Hi BB, I’m happy that you wandered over to RFAF… please remember, these ideas were shared over a period of several years…so please take it slow and steady. If you look in the very top tab area, there is a section called “Sets of Cards.” If you click on those tabs, the original cards, the ones I first made, are presented with 4 cards on a page. I have those printed out, as cards, and reflected on those ideas for many months before I thought of sharing them on this blog. There are the seven original sets of cards up there.
        btw…I love what you wrote… “this is where I need to be”….I added it to the next post …I understand…

        • Thanks so much for this blog, for the tips, and for you. This is a time in my journey where fresh inspiriation is vital. Your words even on this particular post hold me up today.

          I’m grateful that you are sharing them and so generously so. I think I said before t=you remind me of one of my greatest authors who helped me through some turbulent years. First with his simple titled book, Notes to Myself. I over the years was blessed to meet hom and his wife before he passed away. He signed my books, gave me his contact info and became a knowing mentor.
