Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 - 1962)

Interested people are interesting people.

"Turn your hurts into halos and your scars into stars." - Robert H. Schuller

Well, actually, his book is called, "Turning Hurts Into Halos... Scars Into Stars;" But when I was in a junk store today, someone had embroidered the above quote and framed it. I almost bought it... But it's wisdom is easy enough to remember. :)

Farmgirl Sister #1974

God gave us two hands... one to help ourselves, and one to help others!

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
John Muir (1838 - 1914), Our National Parks, 1901

I especially like the sentence saying "Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees." We could all use more of that!

"I have seen flowers come in stony places
And kind things done by men with ugly faces
And the gold cup won by the worst horse at the races,
So I trust too."

I heard a song on the radio this morning sung by Kelly Clarkson, that is my new favorite. Here is a part of the lyrics.

"Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told it's supposed to be right

Catch my breath, no one can hold me back, I ain't got time for that
Catch my breath, won't let them get me down, it's all so simple now

Addicted to the love I found
Heavy heart, now a weightless cloud
Making time for the ones that count
I'll spend the rest of my time
Laughing hard with the windows down
Leaving footprints all over town
Keeping faith kinda comes around
I'll spent the rest of my life

Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told it's supposed to be right

You helped me see
The beauty in everything

Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told it's supposed to be right"




May we all spend the rest of our lives, laughing hard with the windows down.
Susan
