Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.

Richer for it all

Some days are filled with smiles and laughter, while others are full of tears. Some days you move five steps ahead, and other days you fall back three.

When things are going great, enjoy it while it’s here. If things are going not so well, you’re building more appreciation and joy for when the good times come again.

If there never was any down, you could not ever come back up. If you could never, ever lose, you would not want to win. The bright and sunny days would be unbearably oppressive if the rainy days never came. When night seems at its darkest is when the dawn begins.

What a blessing it is to be alive, to experience all this and more. No matter what each moment brings, no matter how each day turns out, life is richer for it all.

— Ralph Marston
