WEATHERING THE STORM ... BE RICH IN ANY CLIMATE

Thursday, July 02, 2009

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

Saturday, June 20, 2009

QUOTES ABOUT FATHERS

"The most important thing a father can do
for his children is to love their mother."
~~Author Unknown

"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."
~~Author Unknown.~~

"The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God, and I call him Dad!"
~~Author Unknown.


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...........

    Other than the fact it takes a father to help make a child, a Father or Father figure is very important to any child, regardless of gender. The boys need an example of how to be a good, gentle yet strong man with good morals, and to learn how to treat people, especially ladies, properly. My father and I have had our differences and issues in the past, but I'd be so lost without him and my mom. For girls, Dad is supposed to be an example of the kind of person to look for when marrying. He is to treat her like a princess so she knows when she dates that if she is not treated in the same manner to leave him behind in the trash. It was kind of you to write about Fathers. Not everybody has a birth father in their life, but they can always find a Father-figure to help lead them. Good words Lita.

To My friends Across the Internet

Friday, June 12, 2009

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

thanks everyone for all the support and encouragement i have received so far.........
without it .............there is no doubt that you have all given me the courage and the strength i needed to continue without giving up...........truth be told i tried my very best and my struggles continue............
i believe i may have turned a corner and am hopeful for the next round ...............
blessings and hugs.....................lita

LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE........

Saturday, June 06, 2009

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.
~ Mary Dawson Hughes

YOU ARE WORTHY...

Saturday, May 30, 2009

YOU ARE WORTHY...


don't give up



Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Do not set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.

Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them, life is meaningless.

Do not let your life slip through your fingers
by living in the past nor for the future.
By living your life one day at a time,
you live all the days of your life.

Do not give up when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

Do not shut love out of your life
by saying it is impossible to find.

The quickest way to receive love is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love
is to hold it too tightly.

Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without hope;
To be without hope is to be without purpose.

Do not run through life so fast that you forget
not only where you have been,
but also where you are going.

Life is not a race, but a journey
to be savored each step


~ By Nancye Sims ~

i continue to plod along ever so slowly but surely and have reached one of many small goals i have set for myself..........this is a journey with many twists and turns.............thanks for all the encouragement and support i have received it's what has kept me going when i didn't feel like i could continue any longer....................you are all so special to me...............thanks for being there when i needed you most......................
wishing everyone a great weekend ..........................blessings and hugs...................lita
