OK folks listen up this is important...

As I did not have the time to do so on the show I wanted to say a public THANK YOU to EVERYONE who is here and to show just how truly GRATEFUL and AWESTRUCK.....SUPPORTED and so many other words I can come up with
Here are some of my many quotes I have found along the way to express my DEEPEST APPRECIATION AND GRATITUDE TO ALL OF YOU!!!!

OLA has become my family over the years and many more to come.

“When we become more fully aware that our success is due in large measure to the loyalty, helpfulness, and encouragement we have received from others, our desire grows to pass on similar gifts. Gratitude spurs us on to prove ourselves worthy of what others have done for us. The spirit of gratitude is a powerful energizer.” — Wilferd A. Peterson

This I try to do everyday -

“Whatever our individual troubles and challenges may be, it’s important to pause every now and then to appreciate all that we have, on every level. We need to literally “count our blessings,” give thanks for them, allow ourselves to enjoy them, and relish the experience of prosperity we already have.” — Shakti Gawain

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” — William Arthur Ward

(and OLA is anything but an ordinary job it is a joy for many many of us and we all appreciate you Oregonites)

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” — Thornton Wilder

(and because of OLA--Chris and Val... I like others here have many treasures across the United States and they are each called FAMILY. )

Expand your mind by dreaming bigger.Don't settle for less.

In due time, you will regain your power and plow through your

Go for it!

That my dear friends is Chris and Val they dared to dream BIG and because of that we are here and ......


Let's all help Chris's dream by dreaming bigger ourselves going into the New Year and beyond!!!!
Thank you for reading and listening and being there for each other.
