TIM'S MOTTOS“No one owes you anything in LIFE – YOU owe yourself to make the right decisions.”

Poem By Tim Gardner
“The harder I fall the higher I climb.
My smile will say I own the world
even if I just lost it.
If it’s cold, I will put on a jacket.
If it’s hot, I will take my jacket off.
I stand up for all of my own decisions.
I blame no other for any mistakes.
I would walk to the end of the world for my friend
to give him my only shirt.
Be TRUE to your deepest core,
Allow your REFLECTION to be pure.”
