What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
~ Spencer Johnson ~
Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something,
loves something, and has lost something.
~ Proverb ~
May we join hands around the dinner table,
To pray for the strength and patience to love one another.
May our circle grow with every birth and union,
Into a community united by love, rather than blood.
May every hardship make our circle stronger.
May it teach us that whenever we reach out in need,
Our hands will always be clasped in the palms of others.
~ Taz Tagore ~

and there won’t be any more time
to do the things you’ve always wanted.

Let others argue over small things, but not you.
Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.

in someone else’s hands, but not you.

they would be asked two questions
and their answers would determine
whether they could continue their journey
in the afterlife.
The first question was, “Did you bring joy?”
The second was, “Did you find joy?”

or we make ourselves happy.
