Kindness counts and compassion is a beautiful thing… ~ Bette A. Stevens http://www.4writersandreaders.com

Sacred Touches

The purpose of life is not to be happy.
It is to be useful, to be honorable,
to be compassionate,
to have it make some difference
you have lived and lived well.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
