Words of Wisdom

"You must not expect anything from others. It's you, of yourself, of whom you must ask a lot. Only from oneself has one the right to ask everything and anything. This way it's up to you -- your own choices -- what you get from others remains a present, a gift."  - Albert Schweitzer

A pretzel snowboarn turns into a...
  pretzel rocket!
 "Whatever you're thinking or feeling about yourself on the inside will be the energy you project on the outside."
 "BEAUTY grabs attention;  PERSONALITY grabs the heart."  
  “You weren’t an accident. You weren’t mass produced. You aren’t an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on the earth by the Master Craftsman.”  ~Max Lucado
"While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about."  -Angela Schwindt
 "If you can't explain it simply, you don't know it well enough."        - Albert Einstein
"A smart person knows what to say, a wise person knows whether or not to say it."
 Our lives are the sum
Of each moment, each interaction.
Each day we work, eat, laugh, teach, play, read, remember...
And work at it all again the next day.

Within seemingly small moments we find opportunity
To build relationships, develop character, find joy
For the price of our time.

Life's most essential possibilities are realized at home.

Where we share, teach, grow, learn, serve, give
Our best without praise or fanfare.
Because every effort, every moment matters
In the development of a person.

Nothing is really routine.
-philosophy of "Seeing the Everyday" (a magazine)
