A Firm Foundation



“A successful person

is one who can lay

a firm foundation

with the bricks

that others throw

at him or her.”


~ David Brinkley


The bricks of envy and jealousy can hurt,

only if you let them.

If you are building your life

with honest sweat and tears,

doing only the next right thing,

you will be supplying the mortar

to hold together a reputation

that cannot be shaken.

Tonight, know that you are a success

if you can lay your head on the pillow

and can say a prayer of thanks to your Higher Power

for having another beautiful, blessed day.

Happiness is successfully laying a firm foundation.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
