I’ve learned that…

… the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person…

… when you’re in love, it shows…

… having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world…

…being kind is more important than being right…

… I can always pray for someone when I don’t have the strength to help him in some other way…

… no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with…

…sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand…

…simple walks around the block with my father as a child have done wonders for me as an adult…

…life is like a roll of toilet paper-the closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes…

…we should be glad God doesn’t give us everything we ask for…

…money doesn’t buy class…

…it’s the small daily happenings that make life so spectacular…

…under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved…

…to ignore facts does not change the facts…

…when you plan to get even with someone; you are only letting that person continue to hurt you…

…love, not time, heals all wounds…

…the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am…

…everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile…

… no one is perfect until you fall in love with them…

…life is tough, but I’m tougher…

…opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss…

…when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere…

…one should keep his words both soft and tender because tomorrow he may have to eat them…

…I can’t choose how I feel, but I can choose what I do about it…

…the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done…

    Here's to the Kids who are Different
    (Dilby Wolfe)

    Here's to the kids that are different,
    The kids that don't always get A's.
    The kids that have ears, twice as big as their peers,
    Or have noses that go on for days.

    Here's to the kids that are different,
    The kids that are just out of step.
    The kids they all tease,
    Who have cuts on their knees,
    And whose sneakers are constantly wet.
    Here's to the kids that are
    The kids with a mischievous streak.
    For when they have grown,
    As history has shown,

    It's their difference that makes them unique.
