Or So I Thought…

We are sent here to this planet to make a difference – I always felt it. Now I know it. We are given essential tools and talents and it is our job to make something of what we have. And what do we have? Eyes to see; ears to hear; a brain to think; arms

Taking Charge

One of the blessings I have always been grateful for is the knowledge of knowing that I am in charge of my own life. Now, you might think that sounds pretty silly coming from me – a man – a quadriplegic man – confined to a wheelchair for the last 14 years. And it is
