  1. Hi Linda congrats on the award…I didn’t know I am included on tjose you have nominated. I am humbled and honored…I will definitely work on responding soon. I love knowing about you, it seems you have a very colorful and happy life. I would love to dance and learn piano but never had that chance. The song ‘What A Feeling” is one if the songs I won’t forget since it is the first and only time I have danced in front of an audience when I was 6 yrs old, I was only included in the dance program because I have an award in kindergarten…It brings wonderful memories of my childhood…most 80’s song do. I would love to sing that with you in Karaoke 🙂 I share your joy in having children and Kudos to you for doing an amazing job. Hugs! Give your grandchildren hugs for me will you? 🙂
