Im in the business of falling in love with life.

I found this in an old new paper, and loved it.

...the truth about life is that the joy of living is determined, not so much by what happens to us as the way we look at what is happening. Great living comes from great outlooks. What life does to us depends largely upon what life finds in us. Boca Raton News, Sept, 23 1982

I'm determined in making the changes to love life better.

King Leonidas were are you?

Where are the men that keep their word?
Their words are to be feared and trusted, because they are prophetic promises.
Where are men that know who they are are, that stand as kings?
They fear nothing except God.
Where are men that can be trusted?
They search their souls fo truth and honor it.
They are for justice and freedom.
They love their families and country and will fight to the end for it and never retreat,
to defend all that they are and all that is good.

I need a man I can admire and adore. Maybe I'm too picky or expect too much, but I will not settle or marry a man I can't admire. I can not settle with just any man, if I want to be the women I'm striving to be.

The Birth of Chirst by Carl Bloch

To my friends and my country...

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature. - Abraham Lincoln's inaugural address
