I Believe . . .

That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we became.

That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you sometime, and you must forgive them for that.

That just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be . . .


That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you ever see them.

That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

That money is a lousy way to keep score!

That I have a right not to like something, but never a right to be cruel.

That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to forgive yourself.

That no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.

That the people you care about most in this world are taken from you much too soon.

Life is more precious than money will ever be.




Here are some more color hints to brighten up your rooms for autumn:
  • Use rugs and pillows to color coordinate your room. Bright reds such as cherry, persimmon, or cranberry are great!
  • Traditional neutral colors, including some new ones like sand, wheat, mustard, and stone never go out of style and blend harmoniously with most existing color schemes.
  • Using a few different but coordinating colors can be a great way to add dimension to a room and highlight certain things, or even divide a room into separate areas when it's used for multiple functions.
  • Experiment! Be brave. Try new colors on small sections first to see how it looks.
