    "When life gives you lemons,

    you don't make lemonade. You use the seeds to plant a whole orchard - an entire franchise! Or you could just stay on the Destiny Bus and drink lemonade someone else has made, from a can." -Anthon St. Maarten

    “...stop pacing the aisles

    and counting the miles. Instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice cream, go barefoot oftener, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more and cry less. Life must be lived as we go along. ” ― Robert J. Hastings, Tinyburg Tales

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.

    This quote is from a 16 year old football player

    who had a chance to start varsity his freshman year. It touches me because the I felt the same way with my softball coach. Read it please. Just knowing that coaches do this to their athletes all over is terrible.
