Gratitude...

Saturday, January 28, 2012

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
Melody Beattie

Sadness...

Thursday, January 26, 2012

When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness; instead keep your head up high and gaze into heaven for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal. ~Author Unknown

My thoughts and prayers go out to a wondeful young family who recently lost their beautiful wife/mother to cancer!

A quote for Tuesday...

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Never do something permanently stupid just because you are temporarily upset.- Anon

How many times do we react to a situtation in a way we later regret? This quote offers great advise!

    Great advice! One little slip can change things in a hurry! (And usually can't be undone). Be careful!!
