For better or worse, our early years have a great impact on how we live our lives out as adults. For some, the road is rocky and hard while for others, it is filled with adventure and a thirst for knowledge. Both of my parents encouraged my creative side and I am forever indebted to them.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!
