Family and Friends

People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

This is what I learned today. People aren't always what they seem. They will say all the things that you want to hear and make you think that they love you. Then they turn around and bad mouth you to the first person who will listen. If you have a problem, wouldn't it be more grown up to face the problem head on and talk about it rather than complain to others (who don't even know them) and give them a bad opinion without even knowing them or trying to get to know them. The hardest part is being the bigger person, not confronting them on it and trying to love them just the same!!! GRRRRRRR!

OH Mona...I so hear you!! Shocking isn't it how those stain glass windows can loose their sparkle so quickly!

I really cannot get over the attitudes of competition and loss lately. Is it just me or did I miss the boat?

That Quote is great Mona and so true. I am glad that you are on your little holiday and that soon you and Chris will have some one on one time :-) As long as you keep shining than your sparkle will grow! miss yah
