I have the most awesome friends on the planet – that’s what I keep realizing 🙂
It’s 12 : 00 PM on day 1975 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 2 Thessalonians 3, learn one new thing –Explorer Ferdinand Magellan Named the Pacific Ocean in the 16th Century. In 1519, Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan, in the employ of Spain, began a journey across the Atlantic Ocean to seek a western route to the Spice Islands via South America. –have breakfast and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign – raised $2 082 so far only $4 168 more to raise by 10 Jan 2017 (SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).
