Dedicated to a very special friend, and kindred sister..who's talent and passion for life is more awe inspiring that she knows.

May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not
always understand.
May the pain you have known and
the conflict you have experienced
give you the strength to walk through life facing each new
situation with courage and optimism.
Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will
always be there, even when you feel most alone.
May you discover enough goodness in others to
believe in a world of peace.
May a kind word, a reassuring touch,
a warm smile be yours every day of your life,
and may you give these gifts as well as receive them.
Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.
Teach love to those who know hate,
and let that love embrace you as
you go into the world.
May the teaching of those you admire become part of you,
so that you may call upon them.
Remember, those whose lives you have touched
and who have touched yours are always a part of you,
even if the encounters were less than you would have wished.
It is the content of the encounter that is more important than its' form.
May you not become too concerned with material matters,
but instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart.
Find time in each day to see the beauty and
love in the world around you.
Realize that each person has limitless abilities,
but each of us is different in our own way.
What you may feel you lack in one regard
may be more than compensated for in another.
What you feel you lack in the present
may become one of your strengths in the future.
May you see your future as one filled
with promise and possibility.
Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.
May you find enough inner strength to
determine your own worth by yourself,
and not be dependent on another's judgments
of your accomplishments.
