This girl is the epitome of optimism.
Last March my cousin Mandy & her family moved to Plymouth, Washington, just 30 minutes away from me.
This girl inspires me.
has lived in Brazil for 2 years,
is battling cancer,
is raising an autistic son,
has opened a Tiki Hut selling Gourmet Shaved Ice in Hermiston, Oregon...all with a smile on her face!!
So, as our Great Great Great Great Uncle Mark Twain said,
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
