WEATHERING THE STORM ...
BE RICH IN ANY CLIMATE
The secret to being rich lies in remembering that
friendships are priceless, time is invaluable,
health is wealth, and love is a treasure.
Create a nest egg of beautiful memories
that you can dip into from time to time
to ease any sorrows.
Have the kind of remembrances
that raise you up with their worth
and keep you there with their wonder.
Always have a supply of hopes on hand
to help you plan your tomorrows.
Remember that when you invest in your dreams,
it is impossible to overpay.
Give away smiles,
and watch them come back to you
a hundred times over.
Stuff your pockets with kindness and optimism;
there is nothing more precious in the world.
I'm sharing this advice with you today
because you are a treasured piece
in the puzzle of my life.

QUOTES ABOUT FATHERS
"The most important thing a father can do
for his children is to love their mother."
"To her the name of father was another name for love."
~~By Fanny Fern.~~
"They didn't believe their father had ever been young;
surely even in the cradle he had been a very,
very small man in a gray suit,
with a little dark mustache and flat, incurious eyes."
~~By Richard Shattuck.~~
"Fathers, like mothers, are not born.
Men grow into fathers-
and fathering is
a very important stage in their development."
~~By David M. Gottesman.~~
"It is a wise father that knows his own child."
~~By William Shakespeare (1564-1616)~~
"It doesn't matter who my father was;
it matters who I remember he was."
~~By Anne Sexton (1928-1974) U.S. poet.~~
"I cannot think of any need in childhood
as strong as the need for a father's protection."
~~By Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)~~
"A Man's children and his garden both reflect the
amount of weeding done during the growing season."
"The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God, and I call him Dad!"
Hope all have a FANTASTIC Sunday.
For all the fathers,father-in-laws, brothers, relatives, friends, neighbors, co-workers that are fathers.............may your day be as special as you are...........

Somehow in this great big world
I found my way to you —
My friend across the Internet,
My heart, my joy, that's who!
You try to make me smile
With the mail you send my way,
You never fail to drop a line
Each and every day...
Whenever I have hurried home
With something new to share,
I find it just so comforting
That you are always there.
Encouragement you give me
And a friendship that is true...
I'm glad that when I went online,
I found someone like YOU!
~ Author Unknown

i believe i may have turned a corner and am hopeful for the next round ...............
blessings and hugs.....................lita

LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE
Little stones make big mountains,
Little steps can cover miles,
Little acts of loving-kindness
Give the world it's biggest smiles...
Little words can soothe big troubles
Little hugs can dry big tears,
Little candles light the darkness,
Little memories last for years...
Little dreams can lead to greatness,
Little victories to success~
It's the little things in life
That brings the greatest happiness...
~ Author Unknown
It really is the little things that mean the most of all...
The "let me help you with that" things that may seem very small,
The "I'll be glad to do it" things that make your cares much lighter,
The "laugh with me, it's funny" things that make your outlook brighter...
The "never mind the trouble" things, the "yes, I understand,"
The interest and encouragement in everything you've planned...
It really is the little things, the friendly word or smile,
That add such happiness to life and make it more worthwhile.
