Dear Mr. President, Thank You for inspiring us to CHANGE. Dear Mr. President, although, we are not all aware; CHANGE is here. Dear Mr President, I'm an artist & I'm about to paint you a portrait of CHANGE with my words. Dear Mr President, this is a modern, yet somewhat traditional portrait of one woman, an expectant mother. Dear Mr President, this one woman, created one effort and this effort, I described as A NEW ECONOMY. Dear Mr President A New Economy is the title of this portrait. A New Economy looks like this, soon to be mother, living within crazy limits one day in hope of living without limits the next. A New Economy looks like the effort of one woman, with child, on the porch of her soon to be renovated home hosting her first e-class to more than seven hundred students. A New Economy looks like the effort of one woman living in unexpected, transitional housing, breathing in an average of 291 comments & questions from her students over a period of five summer weeks. A New Economy looks like the effort of one woman to simply stay awake to accommodate her students from around the globe. A New Economy looks like the flexibly of one woman to alter her class plans based on the needs of her students, cause life happens. A New Economy looks like one woman fully realizing the opportunity, such needs present. A New Economy looks like one woman employing another woman to create an instructional, class e-book & offer it to the class, at a more than reasonable price. A New Economy looks like one woman surrendering, creations, to give em time to simmer, time to cook down, like a Tennessee pot of greens. And, then surrendering, the same creations, to the squirrels, the birds, the bugs, to gather, eat and store the nuts, seeds & sweet berries for winter. A New Economy looks like one woman's ability to say YES WE CAN, when a NO would have been O' so easy. Then, Mr President A New Economy looks like this same woman, repurposing this very same content as an e-book for a mere $140 dollars and as if that were not enough, this very same woman instinctively creates, a mini series of e-books, for those of us, use to smaller portions. And, hold on NOW ... just when you thought she was done, Mr President ... A New Economy looks like this very, expectant woman, wife, daughter, homemaker, and artist, creating an Affiliate Program to pay those of us who help sell her product via the WWW. Dear Mr President, this woman's name is Kelly Rae Roberts, she was my on-line teacher of Flying lessons; this past summer. And, finally Mr. President; A New Economy looks like me, a single mother of two, living within crazy limits today in hopes of living without limits tomorrow. Are YOU thankful N the hope of a brand NEW DAY?

Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with thyroid cancer . I say finally because I was sick for 10 months, constant choking and coughing all night long before I found my cancer. ~ okay, side-bar for a quick cancer story.... I was sick, and first we thought it was a virus, then maybe bronchitis , then maybe an allergy, I coughed and coughed, I couldn't sleep. I coughed so hard, I broke two rib
