Thank you

I’m in another country far away from my family, learning a new language and very rarely get to use my mother tongue here. Because of my anxiety it takes me awhile to fall asleep wether at night or just an afternoon nap, but your calm and interesting storytelling made me feel right at home and not alone nowadays. Thank you so much for your dedication and awesomeness! I’m very great-full and thank you
