It is a gift that can take you anywhere at anytime, providing excitement, help, education,  or inspiration whenever we need it. The ability to read is a gift we all need to give ourselves." 
Mrs. Knight has recently developed a love for fly fishing.  She also has been practicing yoga for several years now , and is certified to teach  Children's Yoga .  In 2012, she made the trip to the Himalayas and had the wonderful opportunity to meet the people of Bhutan.
