"Perfect" is not the one who makes the most ---- but the one who helps you make the most out of each day!!! I have learned that rather than praying for an easy life, I pray for the strength, wisdom and inspiration to endure a difficult one------ so that when Families Change, my family is armed with the necessary power and inspiration to come out on top----- perfectly!!! Perfect is not without flaw or challenge. Perfect is the most amazing combinations of imperfections----- to create the perfect team!! Perfect!!
