Hi Jennifer,

I really found your last letter enlightening. I am so proud of you in being able to identify a problem, work through it and successfully achieve your goal. Many times I have felt that I did not fit in with certain people because I would not drink. I would shy away from them rather than succumb to their drinking. As a result I do not have a lot of friends in high school or college. It was hard trying to keep myself focused on my family life and pursuing my nursing careers. Also I had some medical issues I had to deal with.

Keep striving as you have to deal with your situation. You are a bright, beautiful and strong young woman who has a wonderful life ahead of her. Continue on that pathway and watch how your life can be bright and beautiful. I thoroughly enjoy reading your letters.

Always Loving and Caring,

Aunt VickieπŸ™πŸ˜˜
