THOUGHT OF THE DAY
“Today may there be PEACE within.
May you TRUST that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of FAITH in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the LOVE that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself—just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.”
The strength of a man isn’t seen in the width of his shoulders
It’s seen in the width of his arms that circle you.
The strength of a man isn’t the deep tone of his voice.
It is the gentle words he whispers.
The strength of a man isn’t how many buddies he has.
It’s how good a buddy he is with his or “your” children.
The strength of a man isn’t how respected he is at work.
It’s how he is respected at home.
The strength of a man isn’t in how many women he’s loved.
It’s in, can he be true to YOU the ONE woman he promised to love.
The strength of a man isn’t the weight he can lift.
It’s the burdens he can carry.
The strength of a man isn’t how much food he eats from the table.
It’s in the effort he puts forth when you are unable.
The strength of a man is how he makes love.
It’s in the understanding that there is more to making love….than making love.
