No Missing Person Monday post this week as I have several projects that are not quite ready for publication.
Instead, I'll start Monday off with a positive story…
If you are ever around Albuquerque, New Mexico and looking for a bite to eat, don't miss the chance to stop in at Tim's Place.
They serve breakfast and lunch, and oh yeah, lots of smiles and hugs.
Their customer "hug counter" is currently at over 42,000.
Your greeter will likely be the restaurant's owner: Tim Harris.
"Tim The Man" and his family run the place.
Born in 1986, Tim has Down Syndrome, but he does not let that challenge define his life.
Instead, he is known as a former homecoming king, fisherman, sailor, college graduate, motivational speaker, restauranteur, and Special Olympian.
His story has been featured by People Magazine, and on CBS, CNN, as well as other known news outlets.
But enough of me trying to sell you on the benefits of a meal at Tim's Place, I'll let this short clip do it:
Note: If the embedded video is not working for you, click here to watch it.
It always a pleasure to see someone with a passion.
An individual, with the support of others, who was able to achieve a "dream" goal.
Thanks for inspiring us Tim.
Hat-tip to SB for the post idea.
