Ask Linda Anything!
What Are You Thankful For This Year, Linda?
Submitted By Cara Thomas
I am thankful for the health of my family, especially my children. They say a mom is only as happiest as her unhappiest child and I am thankful that my kids are happy at this time. I am also thankful this year that I feel closer to God than ever with my purpose to help women which makes me feel sometimes like I have the strength of 10 people...of course, that is in spirit! Don't ask me to arm wrestle!
Below are some of the emails we received of women who expressed what they are grateful for this year.
