My love for music and poetry I got from endless hours of listening to John Denver records.
My love for laughter I inherited from my grandmother on my mom's side, she was almost never mad, but when she was she was quick to grab a broom, and I soon learned to dodge it!
My love for the outdoors came from my parents who couldn't stand being in the house with me 24/7 so they were constantly kicking me outside.
My love for life comes from my children, watching them grow and experience their own lives.
