I'm a happily married, stay-at-home mother of twin toddler girls! I love all creatures equally even spiders, (I'm severely aracniphobic), but I do respect them! I have old-fashioned morals and manners and wish more people my age did.
Peace begins with me Starting over and breaking free. Peace begins with me Opening my eyes and beginning to see. Peace begins with me Curious about what I am going to be. Peace begins with me Knowing I no longer have to flee. Peace begins with me Having self dignity. Peace begins with me Taking on more responsibility. Peace begins with me Because peace is being happy. And this is why peace begins with me!

I wish you my dear friend Peace and, a great weekend. With Love Ana
"The people I'm furious with are the women's liberationists. They keep getting up on soapboxes and proclaiming women are brighter than men. That's true, but it should be kept quiet or it ruins the whole racket."
- Anita Loos - New York Times, 10 February 1974
... I simply love this quote. I hope that it makes you smile With Love Ana
- Remember its quite true to say One smile is worth a dozen frowns. - It enriches those who receive, Without making poorer those who give. - Among the worlds expensive things A smile is very cheap. - The world will seem a better place And all because you smiled. - And after all this my dear Friend Just give a big one: it's Weekend
... so, I wish you a wonderful one. And, smile dear Friend With Love Ana *flower
Each day I try to find a path Between my head and my heart Mind makes words But heart makes you feel them In a world of unexplained mysteries An empty heart doesnt care An empty heart has no love to share A happy heart makes you sing A happy heart makes you smile Some are old and some new Always making you feel something And we wonder how and why because: What is a heart? A muscle that has no pain But beats for you and the world Over and over again...
"When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities, and so on. When we feel love and kindness towards others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace. And there are ways in which we can consciously work to develop feelings of love and kindness. For some of us, the most effective way to do so is through religious practice. For others it may be non-religious practices. What is important is that we each make a sincere effort to take our responsibility for each other and for the natural environment we live in seriously." HH the Dalai Lama
"A friend is someone who dances with you in the sunlight and, walks with you in the shadows. Is someone who stays there in silence and, hears what you say no mater the subject. Walks by your side and, behind you and catchs if you stumble. A FRIEND is a gift, a treasure to keep,to honour, whom we give a permanent place in our hearts."
... I love you sweet friend and, I wish you a wonderful weekend. Ana
Little children, never give Pain to things that feel and live Let the gentle robin come For the crumbs you save at home As his meat you throw along He’ll repay you with a song. Never hurt the timid hare Peeping from her green grass lair Let her come and sport and play On the lawn at close of day. The little lark goes soaring high To the bright windows of the sky Singing as if t'were always spring And fluttering on an untired wing Oh! Let him sing his happy song Nor do these gentle creatures wrong.
Let Me Live The darkness is closing in Soon I will be gone Why do I deserve this? I've done nothing wrong. I'm thrown in to a crate I feel so cold and alone I wonder what's next The future is unknown. Hundreds of others around me Screaming for their parents I know they will not come They've been shot protecting us. Everyday this happens Innocent animals killed for money Another day, another kill It's not the one bit funny. Do your self a favour If not for you, for your future kids Save us endangered animals Please just let us live! by Amy Carnes (aged 10)
