Life has no need for fancy clothes, or lipstick.
Life is no pig.
Our life is the greatest gift of all creation.

with some lipstick and some party clothes.
See life clearly - no rose colored glasses -
and then CHOOSE to love life.
CHOOSE to be happy, be joyful, be grateful,
be forgiving of everyone and of every act
we believe has hurt us.

We get to CHOOSE our relationship with life.
