My Nana. I didn’t get to know her for very long—she passed away when I was young—but the few memories I do have, and the stories my family told me about her, made her sound like the most beautiful woman to me.
Be smart, confident and kind and you’ll be as beautiful as you could possibly be.
As a child I spent summers living in a boxcar on the railroad tracks—yes, like the ones in The Boxcar Children books. My dad worked for the railroad, and my mom, sister and I would spend the summer traveling around in the boxcar with him.
My son. Each day I’m in awe of his kind heart and curious mind. He makes me want to be a better person and be a part of making the world a better place for him to live in.
In general, all of 417-land is beautiful, but I find Table Rock Lake to be particularly beautiful because it’s where I go to get some R & R with the people I love most.
The poverty gap. I believe the best way to tackle it is to support the organizations in 417-land that are working hard to help those in poverty. Organizations like the Dream Center, Community Partnership of the Ozarks and many others are making a difference in the lives of people in poverty every day and if we all come together to support and grow those organizations, we can be a part of closing the gap.
