THOMAS GROGAN, thanks for sharing this one…

“F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

FIGHT for you. RESPECT you. INCLUDE you. ENCOURAGE you. NEED you.  DESERVE you. STAND by you.”

Personally, I am blessed to have many such friends (and extended family members)…

[“The once in a lifetime kind of people…]

…The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people [who] believe in you so much, you start to believe in you, too. The people [who] love you, simply for being you.” ( ~ fb/joy of dad)

(AKA: Blessed gifts from God.)

Consider that…

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay awhile, make footprints on our heart, and we are never, ever the same [again].” ( ~ Unknown)

I know this to be a fact…hope you all do, too…

“Staying Alive Is Not Enough:

There’s always a little truth behind every ‘just kidding'; a little knowledge behind every ‘I don’t know'; a little emotion behind every ‘I don’t care'; [and], a little pain behind every ‘it’s okay’.”

I just read this last night and am enthused to share it with you today…

“A Meaningful Life…

. . . is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated, or being perfect…[it’s] about being real, being humble, being able to share ourselves, and touch the lives of others. It is only then that we [can] have a full, happy, and contented life.”

Thoughts from Annetta Powell…

“I’m gonna make the rest of my life, the best of my life.”

“Some people will better your life by being in it, while others will better it by staying out. Remember, you can’t improve your life if you are surrounded by negative energy that only brings you down.”

“Trust takes years to build, [mere] seconds to build, [but] forever to repair.”

“Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten.”

“Evaluate the people in your life…then [as the CEO of your life], promote, demote, or terminate.”

“It will all work out in the end. You must keep faith in yourself, and leave the rest to God.”

Annetta’s always right on the mark!
