great thread...my daughter means the world to me. This year i have lost both my parents.. got laid off from my job as a fire alarm tech.. i used to landscape years ago and decided to start my own business... i hope it works. i saw your thread, and its a great feeling knowing maybe my lil one can come to work with me... now that i dont have a boss.. except for my customers of course. family is great! i try to think positive everyday. bsafe.
