'You are today where your thoughts have brought you. You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you' (James Allen). This is an idea that I need to keep front-and-center in my mind. My thoughts are my destiny. I want to change my current situation so I have to change my thoughts. I have been so impressed with how wonderful and supportive everyone here has been. So many great role models!!! I'm very excited about all the possibilities and ideas from this site and the people on it. Best wishes!

My profile name, AHHHME sounds like Mommy with an Ah instead of M in front. When my nephew was just learning to talk he called my sister mommy and me ahhhme. We couldn't tell who he wanted half the time! ha :) He called me AHHHME because he could not say Aunt Melissa or Aunt Missy.
