Dare to Be….

“When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully. When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light. When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it. When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway. When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back. When […]

A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”-Brian Jacques, Taggerung (Redwall,#14)
