Liz, I can not tell you how much it means for your support in this. You are a good wife. Its a scary thing to start trying to make my way when starting from the bottom. But I feel this is the hand I was dealt. I know two things newspapers and painting. There is not much future in newspapers so I should paint.
I have received nothing but encouragement in trying to do this. I have received support from Liz's mom and my father as well as my family both nuclear and extended. Many people believe I can do this. Normally I would expect people to say that I was crazy for trying something so "not guaranteed". I also know that this is the chance I have in my life to try to make it.
I have received help and positive enforcement from ex-co-workers from my ex-wife and many friends.
Thank You all. I will work my ass off to make this thing work.
