Hello World!

There are so many difficult, and even horrific, things that are happening in our cities, nation, and all around the world. I don’t ever want to ignore the tragic or make light of it, but I do want to do my part in bringing encouragement in the midst of it all.

You and I may not be able to change the world, but we can each make a positive impact in our corner of the world. We can inspire and influence our families, friends, neighbors, co-workers, acquaintances, and even strangers. As we strive to do our part in shining brightly, our influence can reach across the road, around the nation, and over the oceans to people we may never even meet in person.

Through my blog, I hope to inspire and challenge you and I to live well, love much, and laugh often. May we all find ways to add value to this world in which we live. Let’s all do our part in bringing beauty to our world.
