"You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who can do nothing for them or to them." ~Malcolm S. Forbes
It is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives
for which we should be particularly grateful.
They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness --
just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it;
just warmth and shelter and home folks;
just plain food that gives us strength; bright sunshine on a cold day;
and a cool breeze when the day is warm.
~Laura Ingalls Wilder
"The full measure of a man is not to be found in the man himself, but in the colors and textures that come alive in others because of him." ~Albert Schweitzer
"I Dream This Day of Wondrous Things, of Peace and Hope and Pride. I Dance My Dance with Life Today, I'm Filled with Love Inside." ~Jonathan Lockwood Huie
"Like a bird in flight, your life can soar above the troubles of the world. Breathe deep, choose, and break the shackles of your past. Fly Life on Free Wings, and Sing to its Glory." ~Jonathan Lockwood Huie
"We can only be said to be truly alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." ~Thornton Wilder
Today I choose life.
Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy,
happiness, negativity, pain...
To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue
to make mistakes and choices -
today I choose to feel life,
not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
