A old time front porch





You are loving... when your own

pain does not blind you to the pain of others.

You are wise... when you know

the limits of your wisdom.

You are true... when you admit

there are times you fool yourself.

You are alive... when tomorrow's

 hope means more to you than yesterday's mistake.

You are free... when you are in

control of yourself and do not wish to control others.

You are generous... when you can

take as sweetly as you can give.

You are thoughtful... when you see me

just as I am and treat me just as you are.

You are merciful... when you forgive in

others the faults you condemn in yourself.

You are beautiful... when you

don't need a mirror to tell you.

You are rich... when you never

need more than what you have.

A Note From Me

I cannot begin to thank all of you for the many nice comments in my guestbook. Your support is very appreciated. I was not sure how this would work on the web. I am more comfortable the more I work with my website and think in the long run I will be able to offer you more. Please read my note at the bottom if you are having difficulty in hearing the music. Have a great day and I will be back tomorrow with another Daily Dose. Remember to be safe and be aware of everything and everyone around you.
