Favorite Quote…

“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.” – Wilferd A. Peterson

Biggest Dream…

that one day someone will tell me I helped change their life for the better.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who complain about problems without offering a solution.
