"To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given a chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy." - Bette Davis

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Talk show host Larry King reported that during a hospital stay he received many letters and gifts. However, the one which touched him the most was a Bible and note sent by Pete Maravich, former NBA star. The note read: "Dear Larry, I'm so glad to hear that everything went well with your surgery. I want you to know that God was watching over you every minute, and even though I know you may question that, I also know that one day it will be revealed to you. . .because He lives."
The following week Pete Maravich died. He will always be remembered by Larry King as a caring Christian.
How will you be remembered?
