May you always feel loved

May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always understand. May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone. May you discover enough goodness in others to believe in a world of peace. May a kind word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and may you give these gifts as well as receive them. Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.

Teach love to those who hate, and let that love embrace you as you go out into the world. May the teachings of those you admire become part of you, so that you may call upon them. Remember, those whose lives you have touched and whose have touched yours are always a part of you, even if the encounters were less than you would have wished. It is the content of the encounter that is more important than the form.

May you not become too concerned with material matters, but instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart. Find time each day to see beauty and love in the world around you. Realize that each person has limitless abilities, but each of us is different in our own way. What you feel you lack in the present may become one of your strengths in the future. May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility. Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience. May you find enough inner strength to determine your own worth by yourself, and not be dependent on another’s judgment of your accomplishments. May you always feel loved.

what’s that word again?

Suzanne went shopping for her mom during lunch today. When she got back, she told us what she bought.

Phoebe was one the phone and when she finished her conversation, she asked what all she had gotten when shopping.

Monica said, “She bought a paper towel dispenser, a heater and two Afghanistans.” At our funny look, she said, “You know, those throws for the couch.”

Phoebe – “Where do you buy those Afghanistans?”
Monica – “Spencer’s.”
Phoebe – “By the way, you mean AFGANS, right?”
Monica – “Oh, yeah. I couldn’t remember that word.”

Silly girl.
