"Don't forget a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated."

H. Jackson Brown


"To be happy, drop the words 'if only' and

substitute instead the words 'next time.'  "

Smiley Blanton, M.D.


Maybe your life is not falling apart; maybe it's falling together.

May you be blessed with resolution of problems

and peace with your people.

Don't hold on to what needs to end.

Familiarity crumbles so something new and wonderful can begin.



"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."

Maya Angelou
