Christine!! I miss you and Jerry so much and once again I thank you for staying here. I knew when I met both of you that you I was reconnecting with kindred spirits. The energy and compassion that you is la breathe of fresh air. It is that awe feeling when we would talk, share our experiences or our views on holistic healing. I wish you all the success in this universe with your spa and the sea salt healing. I am putting a package together for you to ship over the pond :-)) and I know that with that vibrant spirit and compassionate heart, along with an astounding man by your side... the UK will be doing a happy dance!! I can't wait to see you soon.... hugs, kisses, love & light... M xox
