“You don’t need to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.


This is the little angel ornament I’ve told you guys about, the one my grandma gave me. It’s hung on every Christmas tree I’ve had for about forty years now and, Lord willing, will hang for forty more. At one point there was a tiny sparkly “diamond” in her hands but bling or not, this angel reminds me of how far I’ve come.

Just take the first step. Every single day.
