||Where would I begin?? lol

Make no judgements where you have no compassion. ~ Anne McCaffrey
With every deed you are sowing a seed, though the harvest you may not see. ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox
**I believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience... not the other way around. And realizing this has changed my perspective & understanding on everything.
I believe in the Ripple Effect...
|What Gives Me Hope
||Places like this... and people who care and believe we can make a difference.
A baby's smile... full of innocence, wonder, and unabashed joy.
The innocence and purity of children.
The innocence, purity, and unconditional love of animals.
I believe the world as a whole... is undergoing a spiritual awakening.
Random act's of kindness... they're not so difficult... and they also give SO much to the giver... why do so many consider this such a foreign concept?
Noble acts in this chaotic and sometimes very discouraging world.

|What/who changed my life and why
||Anna B... in spirit now. She was my stand in grandmother who was a tenant and family friend who lived upstairs from us thruout my childhood... She was full of endless love, taught me much, and influenced my childhood profoundly... greatly impacting who I am today.
My mother... whom I am proud to call my best friend, as well as Mom.
My two deceased brother's... losing them so young... and in the ways in which they passed... affected me in ways I cannot begin to describe. (One to suicide at age 28 when I was 19... one to AIDS complications when I was 28 and he was 39.)
Don... a friend who's fallen out of touch... but who helped me see possibilities, shed old fears & constraints, and embrace... me.
My animal companion's... past and present.
More, but that's enough to share here. :)

||We frail humans are at one time capable of the greatest good and, at the same time, capable of the greatest evil. Change will only come about when each of us takes up the daily struggle ourselves to be more forgiving, compassionate, loving, and above all joyful in the knowledge that, by some miracle of grace, we can change as those around us can change too. ~ Maíread Maguire
There is no Challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself. ~ Michael F. Staley
Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood. ~ Helen Keller
To be loved for what one is, is the greatest exception. ~ Goethe
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. ~ Mahandas Gandhi
