Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.
Dame Edith Sitwell
Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
Henry Ward Beecher
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
He who allows his day to pass by without practicing generosity and enjoying life's pleasures is like a blacksmith's bellows- he breathes but does not live.
James M. Barrie
Appreciation...acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts.
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.

Can't You Just Love Me The Way I Am?Submitted by Scott
In Sept of 2009, I was having a heated argument with my 22 year old son. I told him that I was tired of his way of life, not holding a steady job, not having the drive and ambition that I did running my own successful business. He turned to me at one point and said; "Dad can't you just love me for who I am ?....

Paul SSubmitted by
My dad has been in the Army Reserve for 25 years and he is extremely patriotic. I never understood why my dad wanted to die for his country but he tells me all the time that 'someone has to do it' and that he 'would rather die in battle defending his country and its people than of old age.' To see him put that...

Her name is Sharone and she is my mother. She is my hero. She became my hero gradually during my lifetime. As I grew and matured I was able to recognize all that she has done for me, sacrificed for me, and taught me. I have a great deal of gratitude for who I am because of what I learned from my mother.

My hero is named Dave. I've known him for about two years now. There are so many reasons why he is my hero. He is like a dad to me, when I'm sick he brings me to the doctor's office, when I'm hungry he feeds me, when I have a problem he talks it through with me(and always gives me positive helpful guidance). I am...

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.
