This is a gift!  Indirectly, directly, it has been given to me by someone or others that I have a great appreciation for.  It is a gift to my family, whether they know it or not, my employer, my community and myself.  Reach out to not just others that haven’t made it here yet, but those that have been here and that are here.  Be a part of their lives and hope that you can place that small gift in their pocket and carry with them, like someone did for you.

Give the gift!
