Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory.
Susan Brownell Anthony
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.
Remember the things in life that are free to each of us—our family, our friends, our soul, our hopes, our dreams, and our knowledge—are the most important.
Jaren L. Davis
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
Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
Theodor Seuss Geisel
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
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.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Like many jobs, the newness and excitement wore off and I found myself in drudgery. One night (when I was staying...
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 ?....

When I was twelve, mom became a single parent and raised my sister and I completely by herself. As the daughter of an Appalachian brick mason (and one of seven children), my mother was no stranger to tough and meager times.

My hero is my dad because he encourages me to live my life and he tells me what is right and what is wrong. I look up to him because he was there for me all my life and he never left me and he never will. He is just a great person to look up to. He is always there for me.

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.
