  • Give thanks for everything - always

  • Speak up for family caregivers

    I may be dating myself in age, but some of the earliest memories I have of Presidents and First Families were the Fords and Carters. It seems of the two, I especially recall President Jimmy Carter, his wife Rosalynn, and daughter Amy. I remember watching them on television, hearing his speeches and watching them as a family. Even back then President Carter and the First Lady seemed very genuine and humble.
