Simple Inspirations

I am always jotting down quotes that I hear, see & love. Unfortunately, lots of them get jotted down on random things like: receipts, my hand, Post It Notes, napkins (You get the idea). They don't always make it into my little notebook. I am hoping to post some of my favorites along the way, here on my BLOG. I was flipping thru a magazine this morning & read this:

"Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not". ~Samuel Johnson

I have not been able to stop thinking about this quote all day. I think it it going to be my new motto/chant to myself as I live day to day. I love it when I find a quote that really makes me stop, think & have the desire to try harder. Simple inspirations!

What inspires you?

Actually, a scripture that has become my life's motto, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Phillipians 4:13. This scripture has seen me through the rough and glorious times of life. Your hubby did a great job in sharing time today -- so fun!

I LOVE that quote. I'm going to have to add it to my collection. I've always loved quotes and how they pack a punch and are usually to the point. Right now, my little mantra is to "live in the moment" and just to appreciate the present -- not to just hurry through something to get to the next thing/task .. especially when it comes to my boys. Time flies way too fast to not appreciate the small things.
