    My Circle Has Shrunk Through The Years

    Tonight was beautiful.

    I am grateful for my life

    and the people in it. There are so many people who have made a difference in my life, from my mom and dad, to my wife and daughters and my friends and other family. My co-workers- all of whom take their jobs and personal lives very seriously.
