“Just reading your blog. Yesterday would have been my Father’s birthday. November 14,1915. He would have been 102..!!! That was unbelievable. It is funny when the day comes you go right back there. Can see him and watching my Mom making his cream puffs! That was what he always wanted and she baked a lot of them. It was enough for our dinner and dessert!”

Another friend gave me a challenge in her remarks, and she knows how much I love a challenge...
“Great post on values! You should try and make an acronym of it!”
Okay, how does this grab you? I’m also including some of my favorite quotes to ponder...
Do the RIGHT THING…
“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.” Maya Angelou
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." John F. Kennedy
"It's very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems." Thich Nhat Hanh
Humor / Positivism
"Ships don't sink because of the water around them but because of the water that gets in them. Don't let what's happening around you get inside you and weigh you down." (Unknown Author)
Truth / Authenticity / Honesty
“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.” Thomas Jefferson
“When people honor each other, there is a trust established that leads to synergy, interdependence, and deep respect. Both parties make decisions and choices based on what is right, what is best, what is valued most highly." Blaine Lee
Harmony / Peace
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in the way they like." Lao Tzu
Inquiry / Curiosity
"Edit your life frequently and ruthlessly. It's your masterpiece after all." Nathan W. Morris
Nonpartisanship / Fairness / Balance
“Auditur et altera pars. (The other side shall be heard as well.)” Seneca
Generosity / Compassion
“You cannot brighten another’s path without lighting your own.” Frank McKinney
