    There is nothing so valuable as to give necessitate giving up your integrity to get it;
    so if you really want or need something, earning it brings double the rewards of getting it.

    The best thing to earn in life is respect.

    The best thing you can give freely is your word.

    My Dad unlike many of yours was not the ‘Daddy’ I would have liked…
    He was a gambler who was abusive to my mother and to us kids.

    The best lesson he tought me was – how Not to live my life.
    Instead … Live with love, self worth, self reliance and a hubby who cherishes me & is a Great Dad.

    My mom has done sooo well. I am so proud of her. On her fridge she has a quote:
    ‘The best revenge is living well’.
