People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. ~Elizabeth Kubler Ross~
"Life isn't about getting and having, it's about giving and being."
- Kevin Kruse
Isn't it a shame we don't usually realize this until later in life. So many people are all about accumulating more and more and making more $$. That doesn't make us happy and at the end of life it isn't what I want to be remembered for. I hope people will say I was always there to lend a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on and was someone who they could count on when they needed me. To me that is a life well lived.
Dear Sharon, Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog "The School of Pain". Thank you, too, for reinforcing what I'd forgotten in my pain and frustration of not being able to make things be what I want them to be -- also known as accepting things as they are.
