A pretty or handsome face gets old.

A nice body changes.

A good man or woman will always be a good man or woman.

Whatever we decide to be, do, or have, make sure it always makes us happy…always.

Love yourself the way you were always meant to be.

I’ve learned some valuable lessons this week: who will always love me, how to always love myself, who my friends are, how much my dad taught me, and how strong I am.

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much.” Bessie Anderson Stanley

I am most grateful, thankful, and overwhelmed by the love of friends and family, near and far, in person and over the www. These past few days have been less than fun; full of joy and sadness. I thanked someone for coming to my dad’s funeral*, and they quipped, “… I came because I wanted to.” My heart is so full to know my family is so loved.

*It just came out of my mouth – to thank someone for being there with us.

Life goes on….the sun comes up…we move forward.

I love my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free, please), and laughing. My mantra is HAVE FUN EVERYDAY. I am grateful, blessed and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I love to share my FUN life.
