This was sent to me by a family member over a year ago. I keep a file of such information that will be appropriate some day. It is time to use this one.

I realized over the weekend that it was the 7th anniversary of Carl’s death on Aug. 4 and that Aug. 3 was my Dad’s birthday. These are the two people who had the most influence on my life.


“I believe that our background and circumstances

may have influenced who we are,

but we are responsible for who we become.

That no matter how good a friend is,

they are going to hurt you every once in a while

and you must forgive them for that.

That just because someone doesn’t love you

the way you want them to,

It doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

That it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

That you should always leave loved ones with loving words,

it may be the last time you see them.

That you either control your attitude or it controls you.

That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

That sometimes when I’m angry, I have the right to be angry,

but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others,

sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself,

even when God forgives you.

That no matter how bad your heart is broken,

the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

That the people you care about most in life

are taken from you much too soon.

That life is more precious than money will ever be able to be.”

--Author Unknown

God be with you all as you decide who you will become.
