Made By Hand: Lori Koop


An "UPWoRD" is a word that encourages and inspires. I choose one a week. To keep us moving upward. (www.moveUPWoRD.com)

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” Henry David Thoreau
