Chapter 9, Page 10, Book 11

This is a SUPER Saturday here at my house.

Our Little Mr. Wonderful celebrated his 1st birthday a few days ago and today is his party.

Being one year old is monumental when you think about it.  The millions of things that he had to learn in this past year are just unbelievable when you think about it

It was also a learning time for his mom and dad too.  They experienced thousands of new things.

By the time you reach my age the list is endless and the thing is, I do keep on learning too.  Here is just a few of the important lessons I've learned so far.

Being an adult can be fun when you are acting like a child.

Love has nothing to do with looks, but everything to do with time, trust, and interest.

Laughing, crying, joy and anger… All are a vital.  All make us human

The greatest truths in life are uncovered with simple, steady awareness

Greed will bury even the lucky eventually

Bad things do happen to good people.

Paving your own road is intelligent only if nobody has gone exactly where you are going.

Uncertainty is caused by a lack of knowledge.  Hesitation is the product of fear.

Time heals all wounds… regardless of how you feel right now.

Most of the time what you are looking for is right in front of you.

Your health is your life.

Chance is a gift, so act on chance when given the opportunity.

Kindness and hard work will take you further than intelligence.

People deserve a second chance, but not a third.

Take lots of pictures.  Someday you’ll be really glad you did.

Money makes life easier only when the money is yours free and clear.

Your actions now create memories you will reminisce and talk about in your elder years.

Stepping outside of your comfort zone will put things into perspective from an angle you can’t grasp now.

Motivation comes in short bursts.  Act while it’s hot.

Purposely ignoring the obvious is like walking backwards toward the enemy.

Taking ownership of failure builds the foundation for success.

First impressions are completely worthless 50% of the time.

If you never act, you will never know for sure.  

Hope your Saturday is a SUPER one too!

Happy belated birthday to Mr. Wonderful! I can't believe it had been a year already! I hope you all have a great time celebrating this special milestone!

I like all the important lessons you have learned along the way, Ma, each one of them is a thought to ponder on; think I will print it out to do so!

Enjoy the day!
