If given a week I believe it would be best spent doing the things that have always made me smile.

responsibility to others

I count myself blessed in life. It is a pleasure to be able to do what I love most. With those blessings comes a responsibility. I believe it is my responsibility to play my part and support my TS sisters in achieving their full potential.
