"When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost..."⎯Billy Graham ( Born: November 7, 1918...Died: February 21, 2018)
Just as I am
the choir's hymn
gives me chills
Tears come uncontrollably
and I cry
til the very end
and then more.
RIP in Billy Graham
“Happiness is not a goal, it is a by-product. Paradoxically, the one sure way not to be happy is deliberately to map out a way of life in which one would please oneself completely and exclusively. For what keeps our interest in life and makes us look forward to tomorrow is giving pleasure to other people.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough...
Love finds a way!
Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things." - ⎯Winston Churchill
"Things do not change with a change of scene. In Salinas, Cal had no more friends than he had in King City. Associates he had, and authority and some admiration, but friends he did not have. He lived alone and walked alone."⎯John Steinbeck, East of Eden
