I've learned...
That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person
That when you're in love, it shows
That just one person saying to me "You've made my day!" makes my day
That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world
That being kind is more important than being right
That you should never say no to a gift from a child
That I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way
That no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with
That sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand
That simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult
That life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes
That money doesn't buy class
That it's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular..........
That under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved ...........
That to ignore the facts does not change the facts
That when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you
That love, not time, heals all wounds
That the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am
That everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile
That there's nothing sweeter than sleeping with your babies and feeling their breath on your cheeks
That no one is perfect until you fall in love with them
That life is tough, but I'm tougher ...........
