Some things to think about:
When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry - God never blinks!
Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special!
Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
Forgive everyone.....everything.
Time heals almost everything. Give time.....time.
Believe in miracles - there everywhere!
Your children get only one childhood.
All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
The best is yet to come.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves!
Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
