Making a Difference

Leonardo created masterpieces.
 Mozart created symphonies.
 King Midas amassed a great fortune.
 Jesus made an impact on all humanity.

And you too are leaving a legacy in the lives of those around you.

By painting ... with the color of love
By writing... with the melody of love.
By touching... with the gift of love.
By reaching... with the open arms of love.
By changing the future... with the promise of love.

Know that you have made a difference in this world.
You have!

"To know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

You all inspire me.
This life breathes easier because of you.
Thank you for making a difference in me!
