An Email from Elise

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We've learned to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life but not life to years. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.We've learned to rush, but not to wait. These are the days of two income homes, but more divorce, fancier houses, butbroken homes. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom and hate too often. Remember to say "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
And, always remember - Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. Thank you for the emails...
~Elise and Becka~
