Do not worry at all about negative thoughts, and do not try to control them. All you have to do is begin to think good thoughts each day. Plant as many good thoughts as you can in each day. As you begin to think good thoughts you will attract more and more good thoughts, and eventually the good thoughts will wipe out the negative thoughts altogether. ~Rhonda Byrne


"Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." ~ ...

"Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." ~ Albert Einstein

Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person they are almost indistinguishable. ~David Augsburger

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others. ~Audrey Hepburn

Tough times don't last; tough people do.

Winners have simply formed the habit of doing things that losers don't like to do. ~Albert Grey

Success must be felt within before it can be seen on the outside.

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it .... Rudyard Kipling

The Lord gave us two ends --- one to sit on and the other to think with. Success depends on which one we use the most. -- Ann Landers

"The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us." -Voltaire

�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 does not serve the world.
There is 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 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 are liberated from our own fear, our
presence automatically liberates others.�

~MARIANNE WILLIAMSON

And my personal favorite:

Never give up. God is faithful. ~ I Cor 1:9

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I hope to never go through that again. We have had mice, a frog, a flicker, a snake, and now a squirrel inside.

How are things going with you?

I'm seeing a doctor for heart irregularities. Ugh.

LOL. I think you are right.I'm attracted to the idea of traveling and seeing the U.S. and all of the beauty and it would be nice to do that. I think a motorhome would be nice to travel in too but I would not want to live in something that small all the time. It's too confining. My friend Frances tried it for a while and she ended up buying a house again. We bought a small house on purpose years ago so we really don't need to downsize unless we want a 4 room house. LOL.

Some of the custom motor homes are really nice. It sounds like you are doing amazing with the downsizing. I like too many pretty things unfortunately. I really don't need silver, crystal, and china but I hate to give away family heirlooms and the antiques.

I would have to have a motorhome that doesn't have that trailer feel to it. I lived in a trailer for several years and hated it. You really will have to downsize!! I have tons of stuff and don't know that I'm ready to get rid of THAT much. LOL.
