In dealing with life’s challenges, there is real comfort in knowing that you are not alone.  The human experience is full of joy and beauty and magical moments, as well as times of breathtaking pain and debilitating stress.

Here are a few quotations to help give you perspective during those times when you are asking yourself   “Why Me?, Why Now?” You truly haven’t been singled out for suffering, and perhaps one day you will be given the answers to those questions.

Words of wisdom to help us feel connected……Please share with us the ones that lift your spirits!

“Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.”   – Viktor E. Frankl

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”  – Leo Buscaglia

“And can it be that in a world so full and busy, the loss of one weak creature makes a void in any heart, so wide and deep that nothing but the width and depth of eternity can fill it up!”  – Charles Dickens

“Life only demands from you the strength you possess. Only one feat is possible – not to have to run away.”                    -Dag Hammarskjold

“In and out, up and down, over and over

She wove her strands of life together.

Patching hole after hole.


She saw it was much more than

The threads that gave her strength.

It was in the very act of weaving

Itself  that she became strong.”
