A year later…

18 Jul

…I have 365 days of proof that the human soul and spirit is stronger than you might imagine.  365 days of proof that there’s no sense in waiting, planning or wishing otherwise. 365 days of proof that family is a word that cannot be broken or altered, not even by death.  365 days of proof that you can learn lessons from someone who isn’t even here to teach them to you. 365 days of proof that love does not die.

Hard times pass and pain fades.
Memories do not.


To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by
a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived;

This is to have succeeded.
