Recently I found this one, I think it is so true:

A perfect relationship is not
that you never get angry
upset or irritated
with each other
It's how fast you
resolve and bounce
back to normal

Don't you agree with that?

Thank you ladies for a fabulous thread... I've read every single one of them, and plan to use some on my pages.... :)

One from me.... I LOVE this quote, unfortunately not sure who wrote it...

I added this to a page of my grand daughters graduation from high school she is 17.....

Life is short.
Break the RULES
FORGIVE quickly
KISS slowly, LOVE truly
LAUGH uncontrollably
and never regret
anything that made
you SMILE.
