“When it’s said and done, the one thing I want to leave on this earth is hope.
I have felt hopelessness, and it’s a terrible feeling.
Hopelessness will destroy you. I want to bring hope to other people.”

“Christmas is far and away my favorite holiday.
I love everything about it, from the event that inspired it,
hoping for a white one, to wrapping presents.
But, mostly, I love having family and friends gathered,
and sharing traditions.”
“I didn’t get there by wishing for it or hoping for it,
but by working for it.”

“By choosing your thoughts,
… selecting which emotional currents you will release
and which you will reinforce,
you determine the quality of your Light
(You determine the effects that you will have upon others, and
the nature of the experiences of your life.).”
