    I get up at 4:30 AM every day,

    go to work and try to greet as many of my 5,700 coworkers and find one thing about every person that I find special. God only gives me so many days on this planet I plan to enjoy every one if them.

    Laughing is the only thing that keeps me stress free. But it's really difficult to laugh sometimes when you've got so much on your mind. But laughing is a good medicine.
