Lessons not only from my own experiences but also the experiences of others. Lessons I learned and want to take time to share with you.

  1. I cannot make someone love me. All I can do is try to be someone who is not difficult to love.
  2. What we have in life is not as important as who we have in your life.
  3. We are each responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
  4. Heroes are those that do what has to be done, without regard for how they feel or the consequences.
  5. Trust builds through the years, but a single second or two can destroy trust.
  6. A few minutes of mistaken actions can provide a lifetime of heartache.
  7. We are each in control of our own attitude. We can choose our attitude!
  8. No matter how good a friend is, we are going to hurt each other on occasions.  Forgiveness is essential to life-long friendships (and marriages).
  9. Along those lines, forgiving others is often easier than forgiving myself.
  10. Maturity has more to do with attitude, dependability, and being responsible for your life than how many candles were on my last cake.
