At 81 Years
It is amazing how resilient we are. We are walking miracles.
In every challenge there is a hidden blessing.
Good, long-term friends are priceless.
Selective vulnerability is the way -- trustworthy friends are the best gift. Be cautious about being too open with people you don't know.

Being of service to others brings joy.
Gratitude is the way to live in peace.
There are many brilliant teachers. Most people have something to teach us.

Find people who love themselves, and know how to love.
We are all loved, loveable, and loving. That is our spiritual connection.
Nature is a great healer.
Labels limit us -- we are more than any category or group. We are all children of the Universe -- that is all.
