Real Estate Agent - Keller Williams Sioux Falls - 13547

As I ponder the upcoming new year on the last day of 2008 I think to myself did I do all I wanted to do?

When I met her she was a school teacher, and farm wife and had a strong faith in her Lord. Over the years we got to know each other and learned to appreciate each other. She was married...
Only two days and it's Thanksgiving where did the year go. For some it is a true time of giving thanks for the many blessings that they have, and for some it may be a little harder to find a reason to be thankful. Sometimes the days get long and the jobs we have may be a little frustrating at tim...
When I was  growing up we lived on a farm. one of the things I really wanted  as did most young boys of my age was a horse.
