I got to go to the zoo yesterday with my cousins, Luke and Drew (and of course mom and dad). We were a little worried about the weather not cooperating. Right before we arrived at the zoo, there were some dark thunder clouds that moved in, but we were going to tough it out. We got pretty lucky and it only rained on us for about 10 minutes the entire time we were there. The rain also helped cool things off. We got to see lions, tigers and bears oh my; also some monkeys, elephants, zebras, camels, snakes, sting rays, penguins and much much more. We also got to ride the carousel. It was a fun day but it wore me out. Drew and I both feel asleep IMMEDIATELY when we got in the car. I think mom said we were both out by the time we pulled out of the parking lot. A good day was had by all!
"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you are alive you have got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive." ~Mel Brooks
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
We learn as much from sorrow as from joy, as much from illness as from health, from handicap as from advantage and indeed perhaps more. - Pearl S. Buck
There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need money. Love like you've never been hurt, and dance like no one's watching.
Love makes each day a joy, and each moment a memory.
"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence . . . 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
One day at a time is enough...don't look back and grieve the past, it's gone...don't be troubled about the future, it has not come yet...live in the present and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.
