Sail. Today.

The pessimist complains about the wind;

the optimist expects it to change;

the realist adjusts the sails.

– William Arthur Ward

Opportunity is like sunset,

if you wait too long,

it’s gone.

Adapted from William Arthur Ward

Today is the most unusual day,

because we have never lived it before;

we will never live it again;

it is the only day we have.

– William Arthur Ward

I wish you smooth sailing this weekend. May your sails, love, hope and faith, be full and your sunset beautiful. Love always, Tiny

Journey to a New Year

Life is a journey

sometimes the ride is smooth

the highway newly paved

the speed pleasant

we’re going places

happily riding along.

Other times

the going gets rough

disappointments muddy the road

setbacks and obstacles

like small stones

are thrown our way.

We may be forced to stop

park for a while

review, reflect and learn

renew our faith

and then continue

better equipped

our journey that is life.

Now that the journey takes us to a new year, I wish that all my readers – and myself – will have

  • wisdom and willingness to continue to learn
  • faith and trust in life
  • strength to overcome whatever life throws our way
  • ability to be grateful for what we have.

I wish us all a blessed and happy 2013.
