“Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.”

“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

“I wish you well on a rainy day
I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
to remind you that happiness can happen
when you least expect it.

I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
to show you the simple beauty of life
and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

I wish you rainbows
I wish you well.”

I send my soul through time and space
To greet you. You will understand.”

The Serenity Prayer

God

Grant me the Serenity

To accept the things I cannot change

 

The Courage

To change the things I can

 

The Wisdom

To know the difference

 

Grant me Patience

For the changes that take time

 

Appreciation

For all that I have

 

Tolerance

For those with different struggles

 

And the Strength

To get up and try again one day at a time

Thanks for repeating those wise words to me so many times, dearest dad
