A.I.M USA State Tournament, VIRGINIA ROCKS!

Just this past weekend, I was invited to Virginia to perform for the Athletes In Motion (A.I.M) State Tournament. While I was there I performed three times, and had a blast! I was so excited to see how many people really appreciated what I did and took the time to make a donation to my World Championship fund. There were so many wonderful people and I made some very special friends who I will never forget! Thank you so much to Coach Coleman and Coach Ron, the guys who held the boards for me, especially Coach Ron from Virginia Beach who also took the time to help me with my back-handspring! I wish you lived closer! You're a great coach and I noticed the positive influence you have on your students! You Rock! Also, I can't forget Gail who is such a sweet lady! Stephanie- Great job promoting me! Vickie and Antonio, thanks for keeping me company! Please keep in touch! Very important! Thanks so much to my cousins Randy, Matthew, and Kim for making the drive to come and cheer me on! You guys are the best! I'm so glad we got to hang for a while and have a good laugh! Finally, Jim and Susie and Justin and Jessica.....I had a great time and I am so glad you invited me to be a part of such a smoothly run and friendly tournament! I will never forget all the fun times and great friends I made because of you! Love you guys! Thanks so much to the entire AIM Family for making me feel welcome and for you love and support! I hope you'll have me back again real soon!

After the tournament, I got to see first hand just how beautiful Virginia is. The rolling hills and trees and flowers and beautiful beaches! I loved Virginia Beach and look forward to visiting again someday! I got to see dolphins jumping and swim in the ocean. Amazing. And the food! Wow!

God Bless and Hugs from Michigan Until we meet again!

Great to see you take the time to cherish these moments. As we get older time really flies.

Take the time to reflect on your life.

Friends, family, people that you met that made an impact in your life.

True treasures are these people.

If you believe the spirit to be eternal, then these true treasures will never fade away, rust, or be stolen from you.

These treasures are yours forever.
