Learning To Appreciate…

Appreciation is recognizing and enjoying good qualities of someone, something or fully understanding a situation.  It is easy for me to dwell on the negatives of life…injustice, hurt, wrongs.  I want to learn to rejoice…always.  Trust…fully.  Love…completely.  Forgive…freely.

Wisdom From “Lark Rise to Candleford”

CandlefordXmaSSpecial

Surely we can do for one day that which seems impossible for a lifetime.

Taking turns saving one another...that is what true fellowship is.

You can not change things by wishing it so or demanding that they be different.

Have faith...these tears will shine an even greater light on your joy when it arrives.

I know I have my faults and failings. Plenty of them. I can find them better than you can.

We all know you can stop, but staying stopped is your problem.

Another television favorite, When Calls the Heart…

I don't medal! I invest emotionally into your well being!
