On a personal note…

Just want to share something that is sort of along the lines of human interest/personal interest, etc.  You know guys, life is hard.  There are a lot of haters out there and sometimes it seems like the world just wants to beat us up and pound on us!  Always be thankful for the exceptions to the rule.  When you find some really good people out there, celebrate them and be appreciative!  They are a gift.  I want to mention two such people I know.  Dean Austin of Wells Fargo Financial Advisors and Dr. Chris Crooker of Gwinnett Medical Center Associates.  First, Dean.  I dedicated my book “Surviving ‘Paradise” to Dean because of his support and his belief in the importance of following my passion.  Believe me, I have no finances for Dean to manage at this time but I am always working on my craft and hoping to change that.  Non the less, he is a person of true integrity and someone you can trust and respect.  Dr. Crooker is my longtime physician and he is one of a kind.  I recently had an appointment and a fellow came in who had driven 150 miles to see him.  He had relocated due to his inability to find work in the metro Atlanta area but he needed to see his doctor.  I told him with a smile that I had him beat.  When I lived in “Paradise”, I got on an airplane and traveled 550 miles to see Dr. Crooker.  He laughed and told me he needed that, thank you and that it had brightened his day.  Never under estimate the impact you can have on someone with a smile and a kind word.  Dr. Crooker is one of the best people you could ever meet and a physician who truly cares.  If you are in the metro Atlanta area and/or just passing through,  if you need either of these services. check them out!  You will not be disappointed, you will be rewarded!
