Dear Pioneers,

On the eve of this night I sit in anticipation of tomorrow and so many more tomorrows.  Not too much to say other than, let us begin.  This quote has been on my refrigerator throughout this process.  I have turned to it often and it has proven to be true.

“Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.  All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.  A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.  Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.  Begin it now.”


Remember this?

“What is done, has been done.  What’s to do, do it now.  Show your strength in the act.  Let the deed be supreme, over thought over dream.”


And to my dear husband…  I can not describe the gratitude and admiration I feel for you on this night.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I love you.

See you all on one of the many tomorrows.  Blessings on our new beginnings.
