    This is a delightful mix of homespun wisdom, truth, and humor.
    It's a long held belief that if you can’t laugh at yourself,
    you must be a very dour person indeed and not much fun to be around.

    •'I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today,
    life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.'
    •I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles
    these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
    •'I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,
    you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.'
    •'I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.'
    •'I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'
    •I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands;
    you need to be able to throw some things back...'
    •I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart,
    I usually make the right decision.'
    •'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'
    •I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.
    People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back...'
    •'I've learned that I still have a lot to learn...'
    •I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,
    but people will never forget how you made them feel.'

    “Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other,
    when we don't judge or categorize someone else,
    when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet.
    Charity is accepting someone's differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings;
    having patience with someone who has let us down;
    or resisting the impulse to become offended
    when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped.
    Charity is refusing to take advantage of another's weakness
    and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us.
    Charity is expecting the best of each other."
    ~ Elder Martin J. Ashton ~

    You're not running out of time.
    You have the rest of your life to put your puzzle together.
    Take your time and make sure the pieces fit perfectly.
    Don't force anything. The pieces might break. Everything will work out.
    And when it does you'll see the beautiful picture you have made.

    ~~~}{~~~}{~~~ I GRIEVE TODAY~~~}{~~~}{~~~

    "I grieve today for the times I have loved so much
    ---that I forgot about myself and my own needs.
    I grieve today for giving so much and forgetting
    ---that I should keep a little bit back just for me.
    I grieve today for getting so caught up in helping others
    ---that I overlooked I needed a little help as well.
    I grieve today for thinking I could just do it all, denying
    ---that I also have my limits. And sometimes having limitations is a holy thing.
    I grieve today & pray for the ones who have lost their lives,
    ---their loved ones and those who are hurting.
    ~S. C. Lourie ~
