I will be very busy starting today. Actually I have been busy for three days now. Maybe I have been busier the previous weeks. I am not sure why but I think I really needed to work double time so I can pay for the bills. I don't remember paying the bills last year. I guess it's about time I acknowledge and thank the people who have helped along the way. I know it was all God but He chose to express Himself through this people and I think they know exactly the meaning of unconditional love. I am not sure though if I myself know it.
