“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch…to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have succeeded!”

– Emerson

    That is the truth!

    I am hoping that you’re breathing easier. Or finding balance. And yourself!

    Excellent quote. How are things going now that you’ve officially “exited” the blogosphere? I miss you, but I know you’re probably doing wonderful things…important things…like investing in your daughter’s life and spending time with family/friends.
