Google image, Quote from www.gratefulness.org

True compassion is not just an emotional response, but a firm commitment founded on reason. Therefore, a truly compassionate attitude toward others does not change, even if they behave negatively. Through universal altruism, you develop a feeling of responsibility for others: the wish to help them actively overcome their problems.

~His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Thank you for visiting. I am intrigued by the information in your profile. You are a fellow Sagittarius. I saw your other blog, Paloma Lucy. It is beautiful. Basically, I do not have a family except for my wonderful husband; others are far too extended.
