“Dang! Don’t you know that home is where you make it?” – From the movie “Joe Dirt”…, and other inspiring quotes for our lives!     

It’s funny how some words resonate with some but not with others.

It’s funny how a phrase by someone will stick with some people their entire lives, while the same phrase vanishes without ever being considered by others.

In most cases, these words of wisdom don’t require any special talent, gift or intellect.

In most cases, these words are just someone stating the obvious.

Drum roll please…,
