Welcome to my web site.

Standard

These two quotes below are favourites of mine. Life can be very difficult at times, when we have tried so hard and then we have to admit defeat. It takes courage to pick up the pieces of broken dreams and hopes and try again after bereavement, divorce, redundancy and events that make us feel as if we have failed somehow. 

“The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart”.   Author Unknown  

The most beautiful people I have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.    Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I love the lyrics of this song from the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! 

THE ROSES OF SUCCESS

Every bursted bubble has a glory!
Each abysmal failure makes a point!
Every glowing path that goes astray,
Shows you how to find a better way.
So every time you stumble never grumble.
Next time you’ll bumble even less!
For up from the ashes, up from the ashes, grow the roses of success!
Grow the roses!  Grow the roses!
Grow the roses of success!  Oh yes!
Grow the roses!  Those rosy roses!
From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success!
(spoken)Yes I know but he wants it to float. It will!
For every big mistake you make be grateful!  Here, here!
That mistake you’ll never make again!  No sir!
Every shiny dream that fades and dies,
Generates the steam for two more tries!
(Oh) There’s magic in the wake of a fiasco!  Correct!
It gives you that chance to second guess!  Oh yes!
Then up from the ashes, up from the ashes grow the roses of success!
Grow the roses!  Grow the roses!
Grow the roses of success!
Grow the roses!  Those rosy roses!
From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success!
Disaster didn’t stymie Louis Pasteur!  No sir!
Edison took years to see the light!  Right!
Alexander Graham knew failure well; he took a lot of knocks to ring that bell!
So when it gets distressing it’s a blessing!
Onward and upward you must press!  Yes, Yes!
Till up from the ashes, up from the ashes grow the roses of success.
Grow the ro  Grow the ro  Grow the roses!
Grow the ro  Grow the ro  Grow the roses!
Grow the roses of success!
Grow the ro  Grow the ro  Grow the roses!
Those rosy ro  Those rosy ro  Those rosy roses!
From the ashes of disaster, grow the roses of success!
Start the engines!  Success!
Batten the hatches!  Success!  Man the shrouds!
Lift the anchor!
 Success!
