  1. Ok, how is it that I never knew the story about the volleyball going through the basketball hoop? I thought I knew everything about you! Geez, just when you think you know a person after 34 years. :) p.s. I'm not doing anything special over here, just making it to the finish line. You are doing it too! You should be your own inspiration. Your strength is amazing!
