More Dabs of Color: Character

"What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you."
 
"Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think."

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late."

"Make yourself necessary to somebody."

"To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'll leave the assessment of success to others, but where there is kinship and kindness, resolve and selflessness, there is a righteous path.

Every child I've worked with in the past becomes permanently imprinted on my heart and your Ben was certainly never forgotten (even though I wasn't great at keeping in contact). What a sweet boy and so grown up! Hugs to him from Miss Kristy.

Will you e-mail us and let us know how you are doing? We'd love to hear from you!

Poor Ben! I'm always worried something like that could happen to K's tube. Glad he's doing better, though.
