Perhaps they are not really stars in the sky but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.

From my Grandmother, to my children and their children

Many years ago my Grandmother Powell gave me a clipping from the newspaper. I have always carried it with me and have tried to live by her example. To me both my grandmothers were "one classy lady"...

There's no substitute for class

Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident,
and it can handle whatever comes along.

Class has a sense of humor. It knows that a good laugh is the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations.

Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past mistakes.

Class knows that good manners are nothing more than a series of small sacrifices and minor inconveniences.

Class bespeaks an aristocracy unrelated to ancestors or money. Some extremely wealthy people have no class at all, while others who are struggling to make ends meet are loaded with it.

Class is real. You can't fake it. Class is comfortable in its own skin. It never puts on airs.

Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is already up and need not attempt to look better by making others look worse.

Class can "walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds and keep the common touch." Everyone is comfortable with the person who has class because he is comfortable with himself.

If you have class, you've got it made. If you don't have class, no matter what else you have, it won't make up for it.
