Stumble Upon

"Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it.  I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down." - Charles F. Kettering

Gather Your Gifts

"Sometimes it rains on sunny days.  The sparkling sun-christened drops create a charming sight.  With out-stretched arms and open hands, supplicate the skies and gather your gifts.  Welcome each drop that falls from the heavens.  The sun showers justice and mercy, gain and loss.  Be grateful.  Be patient.  Wait for the next good thing to come, knowing that it will, knowing that the bad will pass - knowing that there is no darkness, only the absence of light."  -Noelle Carmelier, From the book If Tree's Could Talk by Carol Doemel.

"What is life?  It is the flash of a firefly in the night.  It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.  It is in the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself at sunset." - Crowfoot Blackfeet

For me, life is a precious gift.  Gratitude for this life I have been given is my saving grace.  I need nothing other than this.
