" A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away."
- Arabian Proverb
This is a quote that rings out so true for me. I'm thankful for the friends I've been blessed with, that have blown away all my chaff...into a huge pile, I might add...and still love me! Thank you sweet little birds that so lovingly step around my pile of chaff and still offer to help me fly!!! :)

The Waves at My Feet....

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”
-Henry David Thoreau

“The secret of success is to be in harmony with existence, to be always calm, to let each wave of life wash us a little farther up the shore.”
-Cyril Connolly

Failure is only postponed success as long as courage "coaches" ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory.
Herbert Kaufman

When we tire of well-worn ways, we seek for new. This restless craving in the souls of men spurs them to climb, and to seek the mountain view.

- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given a chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy.
