Weekly Inspiration

A person's most useful asset is not a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen and a hand willing to help others.

Some people think that to be strong is to never feel pain. In reality. The strongest people are the ones who feel it. Understand it, and accept it.

Awaken each day with the expectation that something wonderful is about to happen.
