Hi my name is Carol. I have always had a passion for words and expressing myself through writing. I hope to: encourage, inspire, give strength when you feel you have none left, and share laughter among other things. One of the goals I have in life is to make a difference. With God's help, may that be accomplished through this venue. Sit back, relax & enjoy! Have a wonderful day!
