Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.

choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.

when we got through with it.

It's not in the DOing, it's in the BEing.
Whatever you do or don't do in your lifetime,

you generated and radiated to those around you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
