Ayahs of the Day:
Haven't We expanded your chest for you, and removed your burden from you, which weighed heavily on your back, and raised your repute for you? So with distress there is relief. Indeed, relief comes with distress. So when you are done, still be prepared; and direct your request to your Lord. [94: 1 to 8]

Guidance of the Day:
Remember, actions speak louder than words! I believe that this bit of wisdom is always important to keep in mind, but never more so than at home. Yet, as often as most of us have heard it, how many of us live our lives as if we knew that it were true? What we say may be important, but not nearly as important as what we do.
One of the most obvious places where this wisdom takes form is our decision as to how we spend our time. There are hundreds of things you can do, little daily choices you can make. It all adds up. Every positive choice that you make reinforces the love in your family and decreases any resentment, disappointment, or sadness that might have developed over time. The specific choices you make are up to you. My goal here is to remind you that you are the choice maker. With a little reflection, I will bet you can make at least one loving choice today that can make a world of difference in the quality of your life at home. [Carlson, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff -- with your family]
Food for Thought:
Big things are accomplished one step at a time. If you only keep adding little by little, it will soon become a big heap. Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. Many strokes overthrow the tallest oak.
