An online daily putting "Hooray!" in your day
I miss George Carlin. He was insanely sane and wise...and I loved his vocabulary. (Those of you who are fans know of what I speak!)
After his first wife Brenda Hosbrook died in 1997, he wrote an eloquent message to the world about the insanity of post-modernity and what is truly important in the end. Since I am with my aging father this week, I think it is quite appropriate to share George Carlin's wisdom here, because truly, I am reminded that each moment with Dad is precious.
"The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. continued at THD Blog

Love Language--A Short Film About How We Connect
Love is a funny thing. As the saying goes, we often find love when we least expect, but it might be equally true that when we do find love it's different than we expected. This beautiful short film was created to raise awareness and money for a good cause, the Jubilee Project, which it did. But it has gone so much further in showing us what love looks like, and how we can connect with each other when we have the courage to break down our own walls and become vulnerable.

THD Quotes (To Bolster Your Hooray)
Listening is a form of accepting.
Be really whole and all things will come to you.
Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute,
day by day, in all the thousand small, uncaring ways.
-- Stephen SAint Vincnet Benet
The passing moment is all we can be sure of; it is only
common sense to extract its utmost value from it.
-- W. Somerset Maugham
