    It’s our challenges and obstacles that give us layers of depth and make us interesting. Are they fun when they happen? No. But they are what make us unique. And that’s what I know for sure… I think. This is true, but one can only take so much. Laughter is such a great thing. I have love you since I first saw you at the improv in 1985ish and ur hilarious “Christian soldiers” hold music waiting for god. That changed my life. You have helped me in so many ways. Fortunately, I have met a few angels along my unfortunate way that deserve so much. I also believe In Kindness, treating people with respect. …. I’m sorry. My heart is over flowing right now. As soon as this claim is taken care of, I can’t wait to give back to the people who have literally saved my life. Geez. Sorry. Thank you for you’re gift of making people laugh. You are special, you are loved, you are a warrior.
