I visited the wonderful site that tells a story of triumph over tradgedy. I would encourage you to visit this site and get to know Barb for her story is one of hope rather than defeat!

Thank you Barb for this award.
It is an honor to know you
And to share your message of Hope

You are Worthy ?

Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each of us is special.
Do not set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.
Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them, life is meaningless.
By living in the past nor for the future.
By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.
Do not give up when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread that binds us to each other.
Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Do not shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love is too hold it too tightly;
In addition, the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without hope;
To be without hope is to be without purpose.
Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.

Creed to Live By

Somewhere out there,
There's someone who needs a smile.

Somewhere out there,
There's someone who needs a touch of your hand.

There's someone who needs a kind word.
Some understanding.
A whisper of appreciation.

Somewhere out there,
There's someone who needs something to eat.
A place out of the cold.
A pair of warm socks.

Somewhere out there,
There's a soul who needs to be remembered.
Just remembered,
Even that will do.

As you live your life from this moment to the next,
Please think about those whose paths you cross.
Even if they stand right in front of you,
Take one little step that can,
And will,
Make all the difference, in the world.

Gifts I've received from my Sisters


Life is a garden, Good friends are the flowers
and times spent together
are life's happiest hours...
And friendship like flowers, blooms ever more fair...
when carefully tended by dear friends who care.

~ Helen Steiner Rice ~


Life isn't about keeping score.
It's not about how many friends you have
Or how accepted you are.
Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you're alone.
It isn't about who you're dating, who you used to date,
how many people you've dated,
or if you haven't been with anyone at all.
It isn't about who you have kissed, It's not about sex.
It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have
Or what kind of car you drive.
Or where you are sent to school.
It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are. Or what clothes you wear,
what shoes you have on, or what kind of music you listen to.
It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown
Or if your skin is too light or too dark.
Not about what grades you get, how smart you are,
how smart everybody else thinks you are,
or how smart standardized tests say you are.
It's not about what clubs you're in
or how good you are at "your" sport.
It's not about representing your whole being
on a piece of paper and seeing who will "accept the written you."


But, life is about who you love and who you hurt.
It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully.
It's about keeping or betraying trust.
It's about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon.
It's about what you say and mean,
maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.
About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.
It's about what judgments you pass and why.
And who your judgments are spread to.
It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention.
It's about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.
It's about carrying inner hate and love,
letting it grow, and spreading it.
But most of all, it's about using your life
to touch or poison other people's hearts in such a way
that could have never occurred alone.
Only you choose the way those hearts are affected,
and those choices are what life's all about.

There will be more topics coming in the near future...
watch us as we change and grow....
