Quote Of the Month
“If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another…. If, by any chance, you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that’s made– that you made. And a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.”
–Admiral William Mcraven
