"The less I take the difficulties of my life as personal affront, and the more I use them as an opportunity to learn and grow...the easier I sleep at night." ~Mary Anne Radmacher
"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Before you speak to me about your religion,
first show it to me in how you treat other people;
before you tell me how much you love your God,
show me in how much you love all His children;
before you preach to me of your passion for your faith,
teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors.
In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell
as in how you choose to live and give.

"It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else." ~Anon
May your life always be Counterpoint to the Clamor of the World.
May you delight in Dancing Lightly With Life.
May you soar on eagle wings, high above the madness of the world.
May you always sing Melody in the Symphony of Your Life.
May you taste, smell, and touch your dreams of a beautiful tomorrow.
May your sun always shine, and your sky be forever blue.
~Jonathan Lockwood Huie
"In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer." ~Albert Camus
