This is a “listen” for all of us…

Derek Clark shared with Family By Design his triumphant life through 13 years of foster care and being declared mentally challenged to living the life of his dreams.  Derek now inspires and motivates foster youth, foster/adoptive parents, foster/adoption professionals, youth groups and business leaders all over the US.

Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Follow the three Rs:
· Respect for self
· Respect for others and
· Responsibility for all your actions.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.

Be gentle with the earth.

Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

I started watching GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER? at midnight.  I logged on to Netflix to watch COMMANDER IN CHIEF for forty-three minutes but my eye caught “Movies We Recommend For You.”  Netflix knows me!

The artistry of GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER? is incredible.

Today is the 1st birthday of my beautiful little niece, Carolyne.

The morning arrived with the sound of cars driving on wet pavement.  Rain is supposed to remain with us today.

Eager to write this morning – but first things first: dogs fed and pottied, power walk, meds, breakfast.

Enjoy the day!
