Congratulations on making a repair by yourself! As you travel your life's path, you will find that fierce and independent woman again. Google has some great websites to help you when it comes to doing repairs. Don't be afraid to try to tackle something in the home repair department. If you can't locate how to do it, come here and someone will help you. We do this all of the time over on the MLC and Divorce forums.
Sit quietly, the answers will reveal themselves when you least expect them to. The past is gone, the present is a gift and you need to focus on today, allow the future to reveal itself when it is ready.
