Hooray for her!  How wonderful to get such good news...my Monday is now 
complete!  Thanks for sharing with us.  Sometimes things seem so 
depressing....but news like this brightens anyone's day!Debbie (COL)"I am only 
one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something.And because I 
cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What 
I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God,I will do"
