Hello, LMT!

So.. Michael figured out what was wrong with the comments. The website that does the comments for us-- (BlogOut) -- is completely down & not working. I guess that would explain it, huh? DUH! So, we're changing comments servers. Unfortunately, that will lose all of the current comments-- but at least we'll get to have future comments. So, hopefully, ya'll won't be too terribly upset, and the pros will outweigh the cons.

Today I went and bought school supplies for Kiwanis D-con in Memphis (they are collecting for children in Shelby County- so if anyone would like to donate please let me know), and wrote my speech for the Kiwanis Foundation meeting. I'm still working on the Opening Session one. Those are always hard-- I'm sure I'll change my mind a few times before I get there, but at least I have it. Also, I attended Second Harvesters with Alison, & UNO Circle K (with a few LSU people and Lakeside Kiwanians thrown in there).. Congrats to LSU & UNO for getting Interclubs! The project was the most interesting I think I've ever been to-- we packed hundreds of pounds of frozen carrots.

Governor's Shoutout today goes to my faithful & dedicated sidekick/partner-in-crime, Sec-Treas Alison-- for once again keeping me sane. You ROCK!

I'll leave you with this:


If there were ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing,
it is now.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily-
but for something that tugs at your heart,
something that’s your aspiration,
something that’s your dream
You owe it to yourself
to make your days here count.
Have fun.
Dig deep.

Dream big. Know, though, that things worth doing
seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around,
pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you
that you are pushing yourself,
that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

Persist. Because with an idea,
and the right tools,
you can do great things.
Let your instincts,
your intellect,
and your heart
guide you.

Trust. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new
brings the hope of something great.
Anything is possible.
There is only one you.
And you will pass this way only once.
Do it right.
