Family is the most important thing in my life. And Always do the right thing. Because if u do wrong carma will come back and bite ya quicker than a rattle snake. And growing up Momma and Daddy always said if your words isnot no good you dont have nothing

I agree that family & friends are at the top of the list. I could care less about status, not do I wish to be wealthy but not living paycheck to paycheck sure would be nice!
