The aim of life is appreciation; there is no sense in not appreciating things; and there is no sense in having more of them if you have less appreciation of them.
G. K. Chesterton
When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.
Age is opportunity no less Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Theodor Seuss Geisel
May you always be blessed with walls for the wind. A roof for the rain. A warm cup of tea by the fire. Laughter to cheer you. Those you love near you. And all that your heart might desire.
What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.
I would rather be able to appreciate things I can not have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in the quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Separated FamilySubmitted by Brittney Imade
Having my parents separated was hard on me when I was young. I never understood why they weren’t together anymore, and why I didn’t see my mom as often. But as time passed, I got close to both of my parents even though I didn’t live with them in the same house. I went back and forth to each house every week and...

My little brother, Zachery Lee Gillespie was my best friend. On April 4, 2011 he took his own life because of hurtful things others were doing to him. Everyday I live without him, the pain gets worse. If only, I could have him back ... I'd do anything.

I want to thank you for these advertisements. It's a nice change to be able to see something different from someone telling us to buy something. It is also the best when I see my kids watching and learning from them. They even have their favorite ones. Thank you.
