It seems that we learn lessons when we least expect them but always when we need them the most, and, the true gift in these lessons always lies in the learning process itself. 

Cathy Lee Crosby

February 9th - some of life’s most important lessons

I have four things to learn in life: to think clearly, without hurry or confusion; to love everybody sincerely; to act in everything with the highest motives; to trust in God unhesitatingly.

Helen Keller

I suppose 'life lessons' are called that for a reason. You need to experience life in order to learn the lessons. And the more life you experience, the more lessons you accumulate. 

Life is about the small, positive actions that you take moment by moment, and then one day when you look back it all adds up to something worthwhile. Often it s something that’s often far better, and different, than what you had imagined when you started.

Life continually teaches. We eventually catch on.

Douglas Pagels

It’s not the big wins, the great accomplishments, or the status in life that really count. It’s the accumulation of little things, the quiet moments in nature, special time with our kids, seeing the smile on our loved ones face when we walk in the door. Pay attention to these things.

Happiness is letting go of what you assume your life is supposed to be like right now and sincerely embracing it for everything that it is. Whatever is causing you worry or pain right now won’t cause you worry and pain forever. Time heals. Things change. It will pass

If the grass looks greener on the other side, it might just be life reminding you to water the grass you’re standing on

You cannot control exactly what happens in life, but you can control how you respond to it all. Love is why we are here. It is the force for good in this sometimes random and harsh world. Share it freely. Express is daily.

 Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson



You are so right it's the little things that make the difference on a daily basis. "Life continually teaches. We eventually catch on."

So true we can't control what is going on in our lives but we can control our attitudes about them. I think we all have one time wondered about the grass being greener on the other side, but I think as we getting older, we realize how fortunate and blessed we are.

The last few days have been NERVE-wracking, but driving in this morning I discovered two little things that made my heart smile.
'Certainly better than worrying my way across the city, to no avail.
