"He has the right to criticize who has the heart to help." ~~ Abraham Lincoln

So true! More empathy and hands-on support and clearly expressed appreciation helps all of us. Less criticism & more helping is a good thing no matter what the topic.

"We all have dreams. In order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort." -Jesse Owens

Hebrews 12:1b...Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us

You have a choice. You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off of your face.
--Gatorade

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
