Dearest Cole, i see you are making alot of progress, accomplishing alot and moving forward! PROUD OF YOU! keep up the hard work, cole! one step at a time. cole, with each step you take you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, more and more successful. start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. recovery is a journey not a destination and remember with God anything is possible. praying for you, thinking of you. sending positive vibes and love your way...BIG HUG! btw, i touched your feet while you were in the hospital, haha, just thought i let you know(: (sorry if that sounded alittle weird/awkward, [blame it on chavez], haha.) hope to see you soon, cole! aloha, Ciemone.
