Everything we do is a choice....some choices are harder than others, and some seem seem to be imposed, but it's still a choice we make about whether to act or not. Not choosing is also a choice.

Sometimes its better to keep your mouth shut, nod, smile and act like everything is fine. Some things aren't worth fighting over.

A house is just a house. Home is where the people you love are.

One day, you will turn into your mother. And it won't be so bad.

People who nag you and worry over you have a hard time saying "I love you".

You kids will turn out fine. You did, right? Despite all the mistakes.

to stop "accepting" your current terrible unhappy situation just because things "may" get better in the future...in the end you will wait and wait and wait....and still be waiting.....now if only I would take this advice..

None of us are perfect and that is OK.

If you know what you're doing, it's not an adventure.

Spend as much time as you can with the nice people, because it barely makes up for the time you have to spend with the jerks.

Try to get through the day without falling down, breaking anything, or losing your temper. Everything else is gravy.
