I have a framed poem that I really like. It hangs on my dining room wall, but I haven't actually bothered to pay much attentiion to it lately...Until today. For some reason I stopped as I was walking passed it and read it. Then I reread it....Now I remember why I like it so much....It is so true and I decided to share it....
It's written by ..Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Success....is to laugh often and much: To win the respect of intelligent people and 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..or a redeemed social condition: to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have Succeeded!!

By Ralph Waldo Emerson.....

I send this to all who have ever doubted their reason for being or their self worth in this world...

I've always said, the only thing I did right in my life was to produce two incredible kids. This confirms that. Thank you for posting it, CL!

That's a thing of beauty.

I am rather partial to the one I inherited from my grandfather though..

Sweet clean air from east to west
and room to go and come
I loved my fellow man the best
when he was scattered some.

Seems I've always been a bit of an anti social huh?

I liked that, those are some words to live by.
I'm Irish and was given this Irish Blessing and to this day I really love it....

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.


I don't know who wrote it, but I think it's really beautiful!

sunshine79....... James moore is the author of that blessing which is only a part of it..he has a book full of them...
another part that I have is..
May you always have
a sunbeam to warm you.
Good Luck to charm you,
and a sheltering angel
so nothing can harm you,
Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful friends near you,
And whenever you prey,,
Heaven to hear you.
I read this every morning when I get up.
