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
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
I have never been a millionaire. But I have enjoyed a great meal, a crackling fire, a glorious sunset, a walk with a friend, a hug from a child, a cup of soup, a kiss behind the ear. There are plenty of life’s tiny delights for all of us.
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.
Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift - today.
James M. Barrie
Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.

A Step Back I Cannot TakeSubmitted by Sydney
Today I saw a young girl, and she looked at me, she said, "I cannot wait till I'm as big as you". And I remember when I said those exact words. Now how I wish I could take them back. I remember my childhood as if it were yesterday. I am still young, only 14, entering my "teen" years. I looked and said, "well...

My dadSubmitted by Jose
My hero is my dad. He is my hero because he is nice. He gives me food and he makes my food. He takes me to school. He takes me to the zoo. He makes a pepperoni pizza. That's why my dad is my hero.

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.
