It has also taught her; to be patient and understanding; to be a good listener; how to compromise and negotiate; organization is the key to keeping some sense of sanity in a very chaotic world; and above all else, it has taught her that knowledge thru continuous education & observation, a kind word and a smile are the most powerful tools that anyone can equip themselves with.
