"When I was young, I used to admire intelligent people; as I grow older, I admire kind people." I could not possibly tell you how much I love and agree with this. To have both qualities in one person is such a gift as well.
"Accept the fact that some people didn't intend to let you down. Their best is just less than you expected." ~Thelma Davis <-- Never thought of it like that before. Wow, that really reframes one's perspective.
