Consider that…

“People know your name, not your story. They’ve heard what you’ve done, but not what you’ve been through, so take their opinions of you with a grain of salt. In the end, it’s not what others think…it’s what you think about yourself that counts.” ( ~Healing Life)

A great reminder for us all…

THOMAS GROGAN, thanks for sharing this one…

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.)

“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…
