Great People Shape Our Lives

                 Pierre-Auguste Renoir

It is possible to live a simple life and achieve greatness.

Greatness defined as “making a difference.” One needn’t travel far

or discover a cure. Great people simply are. They aren’t out to impress,

but invariably they do. Their love, acceptance, and devotion over the

years provides the backdrop of growth, enabling each of us to flower

in their presence. While we are fortunate enough to have them with us,

we drink coffee, stretch out in their favorite chairs, and know love often

without it being said. Great people shape our lives.
