My long-term resolution

Original post made by Simply Sterling, San Ramon, on Jan 9, 2013

As usual, I'm with ol' Ralph Waldo -- I think it's enough that YOU care, and I think that's why you should do it. But thanks!

Think about what a wonderful example you set for your children. If they continue this throughout their lives and spread the example to their children and so on, just think of what an impact you have made. Bravo!
