I believe there is a daily need for one to
be reminded to live a life full of hope.
 Favorite quotations can be inspirational
positive reinforcement, a source of encouragement,
and great reminders.

Wishes for the best life in this life ...
the best song from the most beautiful bird ...
from a sky so beautiful.

You are strong
when you take your grief
and teach it to smile.
You are brave
when you over come your fears
and help others to do the same.
You are happy
when you see a flower and
are thankful for the blessing.
You are loving
when your own pain does not
blind you to the pain of others.

A day that begins with gratitude is a day
that you'll be
 able to fill with positive progress.
 When you're sincerely appreciative of
where you are and what you have,
 you'll greatly expand your own possibilities.
Begin with a thankful thought.

These pictures are placed here not to make one sad - rather to take you back
in time to your childhood or a Sunday drive that stirred good memories
and when life seemed somewhat simple but yet maybe difficult? They make
me feel appreciative to all the fine things we have today.
