What does it mean to you to lead with love?
I’ve never thought of living any other way. I can’t even imagine what it would be not to have and show love. It was always inside me to take care of others. I just knew as a young girl I wanted to be a nurse. But then I married a farmer. So once my kids were raised I went back to school to become an RN. So I say take everything as it comes and just enjoy life.
Some people worry about the little things that aren’t real important anyhow. The bad things are really small when you think about it. My advice is just have a good outlook, period. It is what it is.
