Someone wrote "It's not about where you are but whom your with"

I like that, I like that a lot. It goes along with "a person can be known by the company kept"

I choose to be around, listen to, read from and about people who do good, act kindly and share goodness

Someone else shared this on Facebook today, how appropriate

Lets join in raising our standards.

My roommate comes from a different faith and we both agree that all God wants to share and from us is peace and love.  I used a phrase "all roads lead to Rome" to which he replied 'can that mean all roads lead to Mecca ?

We agreed that we though small in comparison to the wider world saw that even a drop, each drop in the ocean is needed to make it whole and complete.

Much like the starfish on the sand story, I'll continue to do good, seek goodness and share such good news/actions.

In my little city it may appear I'm one drop of water. A drop that can fill lives

Let's be that one drop in someones life

One More

Birthdays or as my friend Kieth agrees "born days', anniversary's, etc all happen each year.

What makes our being born so special enough to share salutations?

I think it's our communal way of realizing our morality and we  made it another year.

When we're younger aging is fun, growth oriented. Past 30 or so it's a landmark

Mid 50's like me it's "Im still here?"   - Well gosh darn it i am and your here to remark how I've lived through failures, successes, pain, divorce and still a new location, new friends, new loves and new employment

I'll try to celebrate being born each day as each day is a gift.   Lets share our gifts of goodness
At least ONE MORE time
