Things & People In .....

This morning when I first got on the computer, I was greeted by a message from my third child, my son J. He just wanted to tell me that he loved me and that I am important in his life. Of course, I told him that I loved him and he is very important in my life too.

I also read this list of things someone has compiled, and it spoke to me, so I'd like to share with you.

I've learned that~
~the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
~when you're in love, it shows.
~just one person saying to me, "You've made my day!" makes my day.
~having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
~being kind is more important than being right.
~you should never say no to a gift from a child.
~I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way.
~no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.
~sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
~simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult.
~life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
~we should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for.
~money doesn't buy class.
~it's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.
~under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.
~to ignore the facts does not change the facts.
~when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.
~love, not time, heals all wounds.
~the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am.
~everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.
~there's nothing sweeter than sleeping with your babies and feeling their breath on your cheeks.
~no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.
~life is tough, but I'm tougher.
~opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.
~when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.
~I wish I could have told my Dad (and my mom) that I love him one more time before he passed away.
~one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.
~a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
~when your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist, you're hooked for life.
~everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.
~the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

Have a great day, my dear family, and my blog friends. May our LORD bless each of you, and I hope you all have a little $ left after the 'Uncle' got done with you! :)

I enjoyed this one. I also loved the video of Ms. Boyle. I watched one of "Paul" on the same show. I ususally don't care for opera, but cried every time Paul sang. You should look it up on youtube. I love it when the underdog wows them!
