Today I dialed a wrong number...The other person said, Hello? and I said, Hello, could I speak to Joey?...They said, Uh...I don't think so...he's only 2 months old. I said, I'll wait.
I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have ? life itself.
