A few quotes.....

I thought these quotes were funny and very true....

“Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, usually do”

“No doubt exists that all women are crazy; it's only a question of degree.”

“All of us are crazy in one way or another.”

“Some people never go crazy, What truly horrible lives they must live” (this one is my favorite)

“Part of being sane, is being a little bit crazy.”

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
-- Melody Beattie

I thought this quote was fitting in light of what happened in Haiti this week. We never really understand how to be grateful or even what gratefulness is until we are faced with tragedy and chaos. Seeing what is going on on the other side of the world today in Haiti makes me so grateful and thankful for what I have and what God has blessed me with. I hope that we who are safe and warm living in comfort today will have learned a lesson about thankfulness and contentment, I know I have. May we keep them all in our prayers including the rescue crews and the military that are on their way to help.
