a quote for you tonight:
Part of being human and being an adult means we have the ability to strive, to rise up, to not let our circumstances define us but to allow us to define our circumstances.As we come also to a close of another year, I can only leave you with this parting thought: do not be the reaction to circumstances this coming year; be the visionary and shape your world. What you cannot shape, call on your faith, remain strong, do the right things even when no one else is, and be someone who is proactive. Be the goodness, and carry that Christmas mood in your heart for your children.
