Quote of the day: 

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.       

Leo Buscaglia 


I'm the person that God made me. I'm caring. I'm nice. I love my family. I'm myself. Who am I?

Answer will be revealed tomorrow.
