Here are pictures of friends and family I saw on my most recent trip home to Cincinnati this past January. I've also included a picture of my nephew who came and visited me from college in Indiana when I was in Cincinnati in July of 2014.
You've got to keep up with folks and maintain relationships.
If you make an effort with the people in your life, they will see and appreciate your efforts.

Everyday people are capable of very good and hopeful things.
