Gandhi Quotes

Respect for all life is the foundation.

— Mahatma Gandhi

Hang in there

knotWhen you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.
— Unknown

This brings to mind the image of the “Hang in there baby” poster.  I’m sure you remember the little kitten hanging on to the branch.  I use to see the poster and smile.  But in retrospect, bells should have been going off.  I’ve been tying knots and hanging on for what seems like for ever.  My life, or rope, has many knots in it, some of them pretty intricate.

But is this bad or good?  Do the knots show I was weak and had to tie a knot to “hold on” or loose it?  Or was the knot so I could stand my ground while the issue passed?  Hmm.

Making Friends

make a differenceYou can gain more friends by being yourself than you can by putting up a front.

You can gain more friends by building people up than you can by tearing them down.

And you can gain more friends by taking a few minutes from each day to do something kind for someone, whether it be a friend or a complete stranger.

What a difference one person can make!

See you soon

loving words“Never part without loving words to think of during your absence.

It may be that you will not meet again in this life.”

By : Jean Richter


Life is full of unexpected surprises.  Fond memories, loving words and gentle smiles are always better than their opposites.



positive energyOur attitude toward life determines life’s attitude towards us.
