[A friend emailed this to me today and I felt that it's worth sharing with everyone. Although this collection was originally attributed to veteran commentator Andy Rooney of 60 Minutes, this was denied by a spokesperson for the show. It was eventually discovered that this is a collection of insights gathered from many people (ages 5 to 95) and compiled in a 1995 book called Live and Learn and Pass It On, Volume II.]



a pocketful of sunshine to everyone!!!



Blessings to all,

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
