Carry on, Sherry

"Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing.  To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." - Helen Keller

I am fortunate to have a friend who lives life as though it were a daring adventure.  Despite confronting tremendous adversity over the years, she keeps her heart and her focus on helping others.  She's a Humanitarian, a Patron with Honors, passes out Way To Happiness and anti-drug literature to anyone who so much as glances in her direction, and isn't above calling politicians to task when she feels it will do some good.

She and her husband are staunch supporters of the church, and probably hold the record for consecutive attendance at fundraisers.

She is a true picture of "strength undefeatable," and considering that tomorrow is her birthday, I decided that today was a good day to pass on to her my admiration for her courage and for her insistent (yes, insistent) love and care for others.

Happy birthday, Sherry Ridenour!
