Awesome perspective.Dane, Mark & Hans & The "Duke" pretty much nailed it. When I was younger all I wanted was a record deal & ALL DA LADIES! Been there done that & have nothing to show for it. This past 2 years have been the hardest of my life & I have grown more than the other 47. Kate had a HUGE impact on my life. Hands down, the best thing to ever happen to me. I felt sad when I was selling off my gear at 1st. I was also mad that I HAD to. Then as my babies started shipping all over the world & I saw how happy the recipients were, I realized I was ok with it. It wasn't the end of the world. Those beauties are just stuff. I can always get more later if I choose. Even Kate got in on the action as we took truckloads of her old clothes & toys to Goodwill. She said other boys & girls need toys & clothes. The look in her eyes just made it all real. She had true joy in giving her old things away. She jumped up & down giggling. She knows she has plenty and she's happy to share.
So....true success for me would to be more like Kate!
