Prepare For New Opportunities...Nona


Life presents a number of opportunities for happiness, pain, love, growth, despair, sorrow and faith.  When we are young, we wish for play and happiness all the time.  As we mature, we understand that a life well lived is a life that has consisted of all of these things.  Be thankful for the past, but face forward every day and prepare for new opportunities.  --Nona

Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed.
