"1. Physical limitations, adversity and hardship are no indication of your true potential. Your true treasure is your mind, not your circumstances.
2. Every one of us is uniquely gifted in something. It does not matter that we may have been abused, discarded and 'left for dead'. If we find that 'something' with which our Creator has endowed us, we can rise and soar into the skies of success, leaving our past behind us."

By the way, Audition, by Barbara Walters should be on the new book shelf at Waycross College Library this week.
Also, I am enjoying Middlesex. You may find the incestuous relationship between two of the characters really gross but the storyline itself is good so far and I am getting a bit of history of the Greek and Turkish relationship.
See my photo of Ephesus in Turkey taken the second week in May 2008 and also my photo of a chapel in Turkey, near to Ephesus, that is supposed to have been the house where the disciple John lived with the Virgin Mary. The last photo was taken of a souvenir store in Kusadasi, Turkey.
