You can complain because roses have thorns or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Thank you!

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

On adult children. The best ones leave and you hardly ever see them. The others, you get to know quite well.

These are fantastic quotes.


I hope the kids learn as much from me as I do them.

QUOTES ON RAISING CHILDREN
==============================

1)Raising children is an incredibly hard and risky business in which no cumulative wisdom is gained: each generation repeats the mistakes the previous one made.
Bill Cosby

2)I take a very practical view of raising children. I put a sign in each of their rooms: 'Checkout Time is 18 years.'
Erma Bombeck

3)Before I married, I had three theories about raising children and no children. Now, I have three children and no theories.
John Wilmot

4)Raising children is an enormously important part of life. I think one of the most important, or the most important, period.
Eric Braeden

5)Women may give lip service to wanting husbands who take on an equal role in raising children, but many will pull rank when an important decision, like how to discipline or what baby sitter to hire, has to be made.
Pepper Schwartz

6)Children begin by loving their parents; after a time they judge them; rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

7)Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
Khalil Gibran
