43: I wished for nothing beyond her smile, and to walk with her thus, hand in hand, along a sun-warmed, flower-bordered path.
44: Families are like fudge... mostly sweet with a few nuts.
47: Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry.
48: Family faces are magic mirrors looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.
49: Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.
51: The greatest gift I ever received came from God – my Family. | Friends are the family we choose for ourselves.
52: A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
56: Take life by the hand and DANCE.
59: Ten tiny little fingers that always want to play, That never stop exploring the wonder of today. Ten tiny little fingers that from the very start, Will reach out for tomorrow yet always hold your heart.
60: You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
