Luck always embraces Hard Work

Some people earn millions for doing nothing but I find that people who have a good job they enjoy, a happy home are the lucky ones.

Anything that's worth it is always hard work.....let's teach that to our children. Unfortunately, there are many people who feel that they are entitled and things should come easy!

Thomas Jefferson's words of wisdom!


There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses - only results. —Ken Blanchard
Generosity consists not the sum given, but the manner in which it is bestowed. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it. —Sir Winston Churchill
We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt, that peace and abundance may manifest for all. —Dorothy Day
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. —Roald Dahl
Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake… —Sir Frances Bacon
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
I will follow the upward road today; I will keep my face to the light. I will think high thoughts as I go my way; I will do what I know is right. I will look for the flowers by the side of the road; I will laugh and love and be strong. I will try to lighten another’s load this day as I fare along. —Mary S. Edgar
The value of life is not based on how long we live, but how much we contribute to others in our society. —Buddha
You don’t inspire your teammates by showing them how amazing you are. You inspire them by showing them how amazing they are. —Robyn Benincasa
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are to some extent a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece by thought, choice, courage and determination. —John Luther
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It's the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. —Frederick Buechner
Joy is a net of love in which you can catch souls. —Mother Teresa
Never mistake activity for achievement. —John R. Wooden
And you ask “what if I fall?" Oh but my darling, what if you fly?” —Erin Hanson
There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.  —C.S. Lewis
