Once we discover how to appreciate the timeless values in our daily experiences, we can enjoy the best things in life.
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
Richard David Bach
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.
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
Theodor Seuss Geisel
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
I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.

A Decision To Be Better Not WorseSubmitted by Bill Keefe
The other evening I was an observer. I was drawn to a young woman in a restaurant bar. There was a presence about her that was in stark contrast to the other patrons who passed her by. Some didn't see her because she wasn't in close proximity to the "bar scene" and others because her physical condition made her...

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.
