Opinionated Deep Thinker
“My philosophy of life is very simple. Love everyone and try to bring out the joy in everyone you meet. Treat everyone like you want to be treated or how you would want everyone to treat your mother. Be good and kind to each other and take care of your body. Make every day count because we only have a certain amount of time on this earth. I live everyday like it is my last day on the planet and I go to sleep at night with a smile on my face and I awake every morning with a thank you prayer for another day.” Larry Oldham
