To be strong
If you want to be strong, be patient, thoughtful and understanding. Anyone can be rude, but it takes real strength to be kind and polite.
If you want to be strong, be persistent. Enduring strength does not come in an instant, but is steadily built over time.
If you want to be strong, get in the habit of taking action. The strongest people are those who act while others only talk or wish.
If you want to be strong, be humble. Put your focus on doing, rather than worrying about getting credit.
If you want to be strong, be joyful. When you enjoy what you're doing, you are far more effective.
If you want to be strong, be yourself. The real strength you have is in the authentic person you are.
-- Ralph Marston
- I have lived in south Dakota, all of my life. My family is here, my roots are here. While I don't spend alot of time with "family", we always manage to bond together, when times get tough. Gunnar's death is more proof, of that.I also have a huge family of friends, and this "family"also pulls together, in a heart beat,when necessary. My parents live about 70 miles away, my husbands parents live about 7 miles from our house.
