Are you a beacon?

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge

“Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don’t so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head.” – Joe Henderson

— From Carol Ann

My advice…be an action verb, choose to live and share the gifts you have been given this holiday season. Laugh as often as possible and truly look into the eyes of those around you and smile that smile that says, “I see you and I care!”

May we continue to seek knowledge in all things~
