"Thin as thread, 
with exquisite fingers,—
Have you seen her, 
any of you?—
Grey shawl, and 
leaning on the wind,
And the garden 
showing through?"
       Edna St. Vincent Millay

"Gratitude unlocks 
the fullness of life. 
It turns what we 
have into enough." 
               Melody Beattie

Even a nut knows: 
it's PECAN, 
not PE-Can't! 

“One honorable young 
man can make 
all the difference...”
