Inspiration at its Finest

 Here is some inspiration for this Friday afternoon.  As many of you know, my math skills leave much to be desired, so I think this is totally awesome!  Once again it shows how far a person can go if they are persistent in their quest to succeed.

Have a wonderful weekend!

A Quote from the Past

Here is a quote from one of my most favorite women in history.  It reminds me that the passage of time does not change our human feelings and our connection to each other.

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
-Eleanor Roosevelt

Have a good weekend, everyone!

A Little Determination Can Go a Long Way

This article so put me in mind of a younger version of myself.  It was so well written that I decided to post it on this week’s blog.  Also, it reminded me of how blessed I am and how very far I’ve come in my life.  As we all know, a little determination goes a long way if we are brave enough to use it.

Have a great weekend, everyone


P.S The link does not seem to work, but if you copy and paste it into your text box, it should do the trick.  It's worth the read!

My dear grandparents are on mind, even more today because it would have been their 69th anniversary.  So, I want to wish my beloved Gram and Pap Happy Anniversary.  I just know you’re celebrating in Heaven!

Our Deepest Fear

A friend posted the following quote on her Facebook page and I liked it so well that I decided to use it for this week’s blog.  It’s powerful beyond the words themselves.

Happy Mother’s Day!

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to SHINE, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Marianne Williamson

I wanted to this article with you all.  It again shows what a little (or a lot) of persistance can get you.  I’m truly amazed at these paintings and the artist behind them.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

A Powerful Reminder

I came upon this quote by Thomas Edison and thought it worthy for today’s blog.  These are words to remember when things do not go exactly our way.  

“The greatest weakness lies in giving up.  The most certain way to succeed is always to try one more time.”

~Thomas A. Edison

Again, thank you so much for following my blog.  I greatly appreciate it!
