" May we never let the things we can't have, or don't have, or shouldn't have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have."

This teaches that we shouldn't spoil our happiness because of things that go away from us. We should be happy with at least what we have. It was motivating for me while I was sad.February 21, 2007

Nannie Russell --- Submitted by Stacha Pressley --- Tennessee
My grandmother told me this one day out back in her garden. I refused to get my hands in the dirt. She took my hands and stuck them in the dirt and looked right at me and stated that just as calm as could be. I was five, but those words often ring in my ear when I hesitate or think I can't do something. I hear ya, Nannie.February 14, 2007
