Thought for the week: In this world of imperfection, there is always someone just perfect for you.


A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip. Wisdom doesn’t necessarily come with age; sometimes age just shows up all by itself.

They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body.
