Happy New Year! 

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:24

You can finish ahead of 90% of the people by just doing two things – showing up and getting started. – The Godfather of Las Vegas

We had a record snowstorm in Oklahoma Christmas Eve. Biggest storm in 30 years. We were really enjoying the winter wonderland until we figured out we were snowed in. Our property is five miles off the highway and they don’t clear the roads.  Regardless, it was the best Christmas ever.  And I’ll tell you why.

On December 26 we put together a “wish” for a girl named Zoe from San Antonio, Texas. She has Cystic Fibrosis.  Zoe loves horses and her wish was to meet jockey Mike Smith and spend a day at Santa Anita. Through the kindness of Mike Smith and Chris Quinn of Santa Anita, Zoe’s wish came true.  She was interviewed on national TV, spent all day with Mike Smith and was part of a special ceremony for the race horse Zenyatta. I could tell Zoe was pretty overwhelmed, however I think I was even MORE overwhelmed. Next up – a Spider-Man film starring another Make-A-Wish child.
