Thanks for starting off mid-week with a happy story! So much of the news has been so disheartening that some of us are giving up on it. This bit of fresh air reminds us all that pandemics, protests, and politics aren't the only events of importance in our lives. Congrats, Hailey and Johnny! Glad to hear 4H is working and acknowledging your hard work despite the obstacles that have been thrown at us all! Good job!

Great story of a little girl that "could" despite a lot of obstacles in her way! It's even a better story when you know the family and how hard work, persistence and to do the right things in life pay dividends. Now the Maggy's are being paid back with interest well deserved.
