Quote of the Week:

My Tuesday Morning Thought: Do not dwell on the past; it has happened good or bad. Do not dwell on the future as it may not be there to happen. Today is the only day you have been given to enjoy and do what you can for the betterment of your life and others lives. If you smile, smile naturally and not for deceit or manipulation. If you cry; cry genuinely with true feelings. If you love; love with honesty and integrity giving 100% love. Life is given one second at a time with no promise of another one so let’s make the most of what we have. ALM

One thought can create a cure for millions; one thought can destroy millions; one gesture can mean the difference in a life; another gesture can take a life. Remember it doesn’t have to be “millions of thoughts and gestures” but each one can mean significant effects. One pebble can cause a landslide. Make each thought, gesture, and deed count. ALM
