i love them.

love love love them [even though i have had a hard time finding them lately].

the delicious karey m. reminded me of these ones today and they made my otherwise ireallyhateyouandidontwanttodoanythingtoday mood fly out right out the window.

sometimes you just need a little reminder of what you have.

or what you stand to lose.

i've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does
go on and it will be better tomorrow. i've learned that you can tell a lot about
a person by the way he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage,
and tangled christmas tree lights. i've learned that regardless of your
relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your
life. i've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life.
i've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. i've learned that
you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to
be able to throw something back. i've learned that whenever i decide something
with an open heart, i usually make the right decision. i've learned that even
when i have pains, i don't have to be one. i've learned that every day you
should reach out and touch someone. people love a warm hug, or just a friendly
pat on the back. i've learned that i still have a lot to learn. i've learned
that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but
people will never forget the way you made them feel.

oh! so glad you loved them, too. it's right, isn't it?

the way people handle christmas tree lights and long lines at the airport is exactly who they are.

by the way, i'm sure you're the epitome of calm and cucumber cool in both those situations! xoxo.
