{Promise yourself!}

Promise yourself to be strong that nothing 
can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and 
prosperity to every person you meet.

To seek the amazing and good in people.

To be Brave. Really Brave.

To look at the sunny side of everything and 

make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only 

for the best and expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the 

success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and 

press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times 

and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself 

that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear 

and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Today is 9/11 and leaves me feeling still with a "what happened?" How do hearts that lost and we as the United States deal with something that catastrophic as the pain still holds its own. So knowing that we do not know the seconds we have in front of us I pray you make the most of each moment. I pray you happy so very much joy, gratefulness and yummy-good and true. And all God's chlidren said a  big and grateful, AMEN!

Happy, Beautiful Weekend People!

Love that quote!! Spent the day with my New Yorker friend today. She starts every Sept. 11th in morning tears, remembering the fear and sorrow of that day. We can't really begin to understand what the people of that city endured.

Amen, beautiful tribute to a tragic day. My children and I went to mass this morning before school and prayed.
