Belittling the Other Parent

“Spouses get divorced; children never do. They are always going to be the child of your ex.
So, the way you treat your ex, their parent, their other parent,
is, in a sense, the way you are treating them.
So, if you can connect those two things and realize
that by belittling the other parent, you’re belittling them.”
~ Robert Beeson,
Founder – Solo Parent Society

The Subtleties of Everything We Do, Think & Say

“Everything you do,
every thought you have,
every word you say
creates a memory
that you will hold
in your body.
It’s imprinted on you
and affects you in subtle ways –
ways you are not always aware of.
With that in mind,
be very conscious and selective.”
~ Phylicia Rashad,
Actress, Singer, Stage Director, NAACP Image Award,
Tony Award (2004) & Drama Desk Award

I Prayed, All Unafraid

“Dear God, I prayed, all unafraid (as we’re inclined to do),
I do not need a handsome man, but let him be like You;
I do not need one big and strong, nor yet so very tall,
nor need he be some genius, or wealthy, Lord, at all;
but let his head be high, dear God, and let his eye be clear,
his shoulders straight, whate’er his state, whate’er his earthly sphere;
and let his face have character, a ruggedness of soul,
and let his whole life show, dear God, a singleness of goal;
then when he comes (as he will come) with quiet eyes aglow,
I’ll understand that he’s the man I prayed for long ago.”
~ Ruth Bell Graham,
Philanthropist, Poet, Author & Painter
