i still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. - John Burroughs (I'll add, and all the sleep I want to sleep :)
if you can't be kind, be quiet. If only people remember that in the "HEAT" of the moment. When we were young, we were told just about the same thing. "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all"
this quote has pushed me through some crazy stuff. thing is, when you're faking it with a smile on your face, enduring, you actually end up smiling. and, it's a true smile. our children know this life lesson very well.
