2/20/06 Emerson Quote y Mas
Here's a great quote;
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 or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
So even though it took 10 years for some of my family to say that they didn't come visit because of my neighborhood instead of a messy house or something like that, it is good to know that. I wish they understood that by visiting, they would be helping me with my goal of making it a better place to live. The more healthy modeling happens there the better place it would be. But such is life. My challenge is to not disappear from my neighborhood but to still stay connected to my family.
