Three Great Essentials

The three great essentials to achieving anything worthwhile are;
first, hard work,
second, stick-to-it-iveness,
and third, common sense.

A Mother's Love...

...goes beyond all boundaries. Here is an incredible story of the love and care a mother gives her gravely wounded son.

There are mothers who will spend today missing sons and daughters fighting overseas. There are women who have lost children in those wars, for whom Mother's Day will never be the same.
And then there is Eva Briseno.

Joseph Briseno Jr., Eva's 27-year-old son, is one of the most severely wounded soldiers ever to survive. A bullet to the back of his head in a Baghdad marketplace in 2003 left him paralyzed, brain-damaged and blind, but awake and aware of his condition.

Eva takes care of "Jay" in her suburban Virginia home where the family room has been transformed into an intensive care unit, with the breathing machine and tubes he needs to stay alive
. Click on below link for the rest of the story.

Casa de Fruta

Returning from Eagle's Summit, we stopped for a few minutes at Casa de Fruta. The kids enjoyed the antiques and I was able to get a few good snapshots of them. I think I had as much fun watching them as they did exploring.

Renaissance of Wonder

We need a renaissance of wonder.
We need to renew,
in our hearts and in our souls,
the deathless dream, the eternal poetry,
the perennial sense that life is miracle and magic.

And The Greatest Is Love...

I will make love my greatest weapon
and none on who I call can defend against its force.
My love will melt all hearts
liken to the sun whose rays soften the coldest day.
