My Mission Statement

Life reminds me of a river. From the moment it detatches from it's source it begins to grow and change. Sometimes it widens and creates a gentle calming lake. Sometimes it narrows, picks up speed and comes crashing over the rapids. There are always currents on the river of life and we never know what's around the next corner. Fortunatly as we look back up the river we are able to see all the different 'docks' we were able to tie up at and rest along the journey. I would be happy to personalize a dock for you as a memory of the different people, places and things you have enjoyed along your river full of life!
