[font=bookman old style]the road
[font=bookman old style]the road to success is not straight.
[font=bookman old style]there is a curve called failure, a loop called confusion, detours called friends, red lights called enemies, yield signs called family. as well as flats called delays.
[font=bookman old style]but, if you go down the road having a spare tire called determination, an engine called perseverance, insurance called faith, and a map called focus; you will make it to a place called success.

have a great thanksgiving everyone,
