    "I am strong because I’ve been weak. I am fearless because I’ve been afraid. I am wise because I’ve been foolish." - the voice of experience.

    The last one reminds me of a saying "How will you become polished if you are irritated by every rub?"

    Hope today is better!

    Peace and Care

    Love these. My favorite is the one about ships sinking. It's so easy to let what's going on all around us weigh us down. I will remember this quote when that happens.

    I have a couple of notebooks full of those. They do offer comfort.

    On an unrelated note, I thought of you this afternoon. DH and I worked outside most of the day today and it was like old times. Team work, verbal give and take, sensible conversation, and as a result, tonight I'm in a happy place. We have to take what comes, but some days are much easier than others.

    Hope you are having a great week. Thanks for being here. emoticon emoticon emoticon
