Posted 5-20-06

Despite it was Friday, it just wasn't a day for fun. So, I thought it would be best if we just shared some inspirations.

I know a young woman whom I've come to regard as my own. She's the daughter I've always wanted, despite the fact she's someone else's. She's beautiful and smart and charming and loving. We look a bit alike and share so many similarities in our lives. The biggest difference in our lives is the choices we made early on that have affected and will continue to affect the rest of our lives.

Today's post is for every mother who's trying to get through to their children. For every mother who's afraid their losing their babies and can't get them back, it's NEVER too late - NEVER give up - and NEVER let them think for a single second you don't love them.

Life is not easy. God never put us here and promised us a bed of silken rose petals and velvet sheets. He never said that the roads weren't bumpy and long, but if we choose to look at them through His love, we'll find such glorious treasures. The roadsides are lined with gorgeous fields of wildflowers. The skies are blue despite the momentary tears He will shed for you and others who are hurting or have caused someone special pain. The scenes in the distance are majestic and beautiful and filled with promises of better tomorrows and lovlier days ahead if you are listening to His words of guidance and direction. Don't waste a single moment of any day. You can never get those moments back. Once you've wasted them, they're gone forever. And never ever be afraid of living His way. It's so worth it in the end...

With that I leave you with a few quotes that you might find something inspriring to scrap, share or simply think upon.

"Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.

~ Ralf Waldo Emerson"

"The purpose of life is a life of purpose.
~ Robert Byrne"

"The only way to live is to accept each minute as an unrepeatable miracle, which is exactly what it is: a miracle and unrepeatable.

~ Storm Jameson"

and finally...

"Live each day as you would climb a mountain... Climb slowly, steadily; enjoying each passing moment; and the view from the summit will serve as a fitting climax for the journey.

~ Harold V. Melchert"
