We are all faced
with a series of
Great opportunities
brilliantly disguised as
impossible situations.

Joy is Homemade

Happiness is something we make,
Itís in our minds.
Itís not something to search for,
And seldom find.
Itís just waking up and beginning the day
By counting our blessings and kneeling to pray.
Itís never in wishing for things we have not,
But in giving thanks for all that weíve got.
For it is by completing what God gives us to do
That we find real contentment and happiness too.

Inspirational Quotes (found in of all places, the 'Sky Mall' magazine on a NWA flight in September 2005)  :

"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goals."
"Courage does not always roar.  Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow'."
"Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow."
"Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.  A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes.  It is a catalyst...a spark that creates extraordinary results."
"Determination is born out of purpose...knowing that you are gifted for something and this something must be attained.  It is never enough to rely on luck or natural talent.  You must, above all, believe in yourself, face your goals, and then fight as if your life depended on it."
"Learn to embrace change, and you'll begin to recognize that life is in constant motion, and every change happens for a reason.  When you see boundaries as opportunities, the world becomes a limitless place, and your life becomes a journey of change that always finds its way."
"Where much is expected from individuals, the best rise to meet the challenge and make everything brighter."
"Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible."

Life may not be the party we hoped for,
but while we are here we might as well dance
