The water had risen to the point where I was forced to tread water. My muscles ached.
"I don't know how much longer I can take this," I thought to myself.
There was 2 feet of space remaining and only a few minutes before the room was completely full. It seemed drowning was going to be my fate, at least if this creature didn't kill me on the way. And then I saw it again, the creature swam by continuing to circle me. It was sleek in nature with exposed and menacing teeth. This was a creature designed to kill.
On April 18th, 2015 there will be a special event going on at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds, McKeever's First Ride. Deenie McKeever, a friend, and client, is the visionary for this up and coming movement.
Deenie and I met shortly after moving to Atlanta. In fact, she was a client of a tech support company I worked with after moving here. After the tech company shut down, we continued to work together
. She continued to friend and mentor me as I struggled through my own journey in life, but her love of helping people did not stop with me. From 2006-08, an idea to help injured veterans by using the healing spirit of the horse inspired her to build something new. In 2009, she launched her first ever, McKeever's First Ride event.
What are core values?
They come from within us and originate from the source of our creation. They are guidelines of how we believe we, and others, ought to live. They are what we determine as most important in life. They are a set of our core beliefs founded on what we have determined to be of the highest priority truth.
In the last year, my new journey has opened up many possibilities and opportunities for me to learn and explore. This has allowed me to learn new skills and participates in projects I would not have anticipated. One example is in my recent work with The Third Bucket. The Third Bucket is a Christian parable to encourage business owners to give. The need to visually communicate the process described in the book, was important.
