Birthday Purposes... (Not Wishes)

Great minds have purposes;
little minds have wishes....

....Little minds are subdued by misfortunes;
great minds rise above them.

In case I haven't wished you a "happy birthday." I'm wishing you happy birthday now.

This quote is a very good one and makes me wonder just what you're up to...I think it must have something to do with a woman's shelter at Freeman House or the new land????
