October Checklist:
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift; that's why they
call it the present. Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)
Life is Not About
Waiting for the Storm to Pass: It's About Learning to
Dance in the Rain .
Life May Not Be The Party We Hoped For, But While We're Here We
Should Dance.
One of the Best Feelings in the world is knowing that your presence and absence both mean something to someone.
A Joy shared is twice a Joy, and a Burden shared is half a burden.
Swedish Proverb
The greatest good that mortals know, and all of Heaven we have below. John Addison
