have you ever wondered the value of your existence?
of course we all have value and we all have our own sphere of influence
I just wonder sometimes if we realize the power that lies in the story of our lives
this man....is very smart.
He graduated first in his class in junior high and high school
he was the class president
he went on to college, working his way through...
while he was attending Texas Tech University in Lubbock, he worked at the sports hall the entire time
and came home to Spearman in the summer to work at First National Bank
just out of college he was hired as a teller at Amarillo National Bank where he worked for 6 months
and then began his lifelong career at First National Bank in Spearman
from the time I have known him
he has had goals
structured, well planned,
he wrote his life goals when he was in the 8th grade
he never ever stopped
planning, thinking, wanting and working
and along the way he has made many many friends
I know he has made a few enemies...he is not perfect...but
he is honest and fair and good
he is a teacher
his example is simple
apologize when you need to
and above all else

I couldn't help but wonder if
were talking a few things over...
namely... how in the world did their separate lives all those years ago...
become woven into
