The Fog is Lifting!!

I had such a great morning this morning! I really felt in control because I could understand what the householders were saying to me and was able to answer them back. It is like a 4 month long fog in my brain finally lifting. Also what made me exceptionally happy was I found a girl who I had started a study with back in June again. I had first met her and her husband at their metalwork shop and placed a book with them (if you are reading this Chad - you may remember, you were with me and I had been chickening out all morning until you made me talk!). I had about 5 studies with her and then she was not at the shop anymore and so I had just about given up. This morning though I called on her house and she said that she stopped going to the shop cause it was too loud for her baby there. Yes - she still wanted a study so we have made an appointment for Friday! I am so happy to have found her!
Anyway by the end of the morning I had placed 9 mags and 2 brochures and arranged to visit all of them again.I even found one man who I will take Mark back to as he speaks English. Fantastico!!

Your language speaking is sounding natural and pure, at first I thought it was the other sister and not your's.
