Words to live by

Now that the gifts are opened and the stampede of store returns begins, perhaps it's time to put things in perspective.

I've always loved stories about people who triumph over the most impossible of odds, so the story of Helen Keller was one that always moved me. Sometimes the pressures and commercialism of this season overshadow the things that truly matter, like good health, family, friendships and love.

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart."

Helen Keller


  1. Yes you`re right, Kathy. The story is really impressive. It shows that we should be satisfied with good health, good friends(like you and Marge:-))and family. But we(not me) appreciate it not before we lost one of them.(Sorry for my bad English.)

  2. Thank you so much, Kerstin! Und bitte, mach dich keine Sorgen. Dein englisch ist besser als mein deutsch! :-)
