“Today, optimism and good choices have blessed me with a happiness I never dreamed possible. I am healthy. Good friends, beautiful music, successful children and a loving wife surround me. I live in a home that’s perfectly suited for my family and my five-acre yard (farmland on which I chose to plant over 2000 trees) has become a forest filled with deer, owls, birds and other wildlife. I have much to be thankful for.

And, while I still don’t have a dog, I do have a cat. Peanut’s the best furry friend I’ve ever had.

Every day is a new beginning. And each day starts with a choice”.

Life is good.
