As I am writing this, I am enjoying the view from my office of the outdoors and I am so grateful for the incredible weather we are experiencing this time of year. And I am not alone. In a national survey Florida ranked the top state with the most cities that enjoy beautiful weather. I feel so lucky to have been born and raised in our state.
There is one very special article that our family decided to share about our daughter’s battle fighting cancer. Her Journal was a way to communicate during a very isolated and frightening time and we are so proud of how she dealt with this terrible disease. We hope by sharing this with our readers that her spirit and spunk will inspire anyone with any type of illness to put their best foot forward during difficult times.
We are also amazed at the talent of our writers each issue. The information and knowledge they share is truly valuable. There are some very interesting articles to read. Chip LaMarca has updated us on legislation, Stacia Garland has provided parents with some great ideas on how to get teens involved in community service, and Fred MacLean’s article on global investing provides excellent insight. For those who enjoy
fishing Tom Greene is a must read if you are looking to maximize your catch.
There is one feel-good article about an entire community that cared about communicating with a two-year old deaf girl and did something about it. It shows there is good karma in this world, and the importance of giving back.
We are thankful for all the positive comments we have received over the years and look forward to continuing to listen to your ideas and input for future issues.
Enjoy this spring; it is such a beautiful time of year.
