One more birthday thought this morning. Sometimes, with all the misfortune that is happening throughout the world, it brings home how lucky I am. I truly wish I could share with the rest of the world my riches. They are not measured in dollars and cents or material goods but in the priceless friends I have made and the beautiful gifts that this State of Iowa bestows on me every day. As shallow as we consider the beauty queens wish for "World Peace", deep within all of our hearts we hope it comes true. We also know that the often referred to "hicks" of the Midwest are the most caring and giving people anywhere, making the world a much better place. I hope somewhere they are working on a vaccine called "My Friends" I would gladly share it so everyone could experience what I do everyday. Thanks for sharing a small part of your lives with me.
