Here is my quote for the day:

Knowing yourself is one thing, but truly believing and living as yourself is another.  With so much social conditioning in our society, we sometimes forget who we are.  Don’t lose yourself out there.

MACEDAY LAKE  is one of the largest lakes in Michigan, especially being connected to Lotus Lake, with both having plenty of waterfront properties.

LAKE SHERWOOD is 258 acres, which also includes several canals, and has a maximum depth of 20 feet.  For such a large lake, one of the benefits of living in a waterfront home on Lake Sherwood is that it is still private.
