We all hide.....

"We all live in hiding and one way or another each of us conceals pieces of ourselves from the rest of the world. Some people hide because their lives depend on it, others, because they just want someone to care enough to look for them. Some of us hide in hope that someone will love us enough to find us."

Life is too short

The words are not my own but could be. "Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab hold with both hands, if it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

My quote of the day.

I always post a quote each day, well most days, on my Facebook page. Today, instead of using someone else's, I posted one of my own. It began as I was looking at my ever growing list of to do's, knowing that I would never accomplish them all today, when I began to wonder how I would describe a "successful" day.  It certainly wasn't going to have anything to do with my list being completed; I couldn't seem to focus.  After a monumentous amount of thought, I came up with my own quote of the day, which I thought I would share with you. "If I have really laughed, I mean really, really laughed, a laugh that filled a portion of my heart and left me smiling, then I will consider my day to have been successful." I always considered my days to be "successful" if my list was complete but as time has gone by, I now consider a day with laughter to be "successful." I know that if I have laughed, really laughed, during the day, then that means that there were a few minutes where I didn't think of and miss my daughters. There were a few moments where the pain of separation was momentarily forgotten.
