If you’re going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now. ~ Marie Osmond ~
Vision without action is daydream. Action without vision is nightmare. ~ Japanese proverb ~
Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there. ~ Will Rogers ~
Most of the shadows of life are caused by standing in our own sunshine. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
“A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs — jolted by every pebble in the road.” ~Henry Ward Beecher~
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”
Never lose an opportunity for seeing anything that is beautiful; For beauty is God’s handwriting–a wayside sacrament.
Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, And thank God for it as a cup of His blessing.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Yesterday we embraced the beautiful spring weather with a picnic outdoors. The children were thrilled!
“When you lose your sense of wonder, you lose your gratitude.”
“The older you get, the more it takes to feel your heart with wonder and only God is big enough to fill it.”
“What if you had today, only what you thanked God for yesterday?”
“To laugh often and much,
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children,
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends,
to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others,
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child or a garden patch…
to know that even one life breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
