Hola Pam,

Thank you for answering my query...I was taking a small unofficial poll and
the only responses I received were from California...not sure what that means...

The above quote was gifted to me last mother's day (I am mother to two and
grandmother to two) by a good friend of mine and I have striven to remember
to live by it since...good words they are...

This is good to hear...I have always been interested in the concept of
cohousing, but being a student (yes, I have returned to academia) sort of
puts a dint in $$$--...and no apologies, but I have always lived very simply
(ie. not a home-owner) as do many other Native Americans that I know...I
thank you for your response and wish you well...
