Good-morning, kittens and dawgs! I am not one to collect quotes, but I do enjoy reading them, especially those that inspire or make you think. In today’s post I’m sharing with you words that do both from voices of the past in All Things Vintage.
Are you a quote collector? Do you have any favorites?
Applauds and special thanks to the incredible A2Z Team for hosting all the April fun!
Good-morning, kittens and dawgs! This is usually my off day for posting, but as you know last week Les from Ink Interrupted nominated me for the 3DQC and this is my last day.
Tuesday, I shared a music quote and yesterday I echoed words about doing your best at what you love. Today I want to hone in words that inspire me to be true to myself.
This is something I struggled with for many years. How I do I love myself when I didn’t like anything about me? All I kept thinking was I wasn’t pretty or smart enough. This kind of mind-set is mentally crippling.
It took years to see and to feel the person I am and not the fractured image exaggerated by poor self-esteem thanks to a very special person.
When I felt stupid, I was reminded…
Just a little clarification, Einstein is not the “special person”, I mentioned earlier. lol
When I felt unattractive, it was this kind of encouragement that made me feel beautiful….
When I felt timid about the unknown, my one-man pep rally challenged me to take it on…
Every accomplishment built a stronger, new me.
We all aren’t the same. I’m okay with the fact when God created me He broke the mold, as He did with each of us. So, when I’m feeling small and insignificant I remind myself…
I got to where I am because DH not only saw the real me, but helped me to reshape my opinion about myself with his gentle, loving prodding. I count myself lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life.
This ends my Three Day Quote Challenge, which brings me to my last nominee, Naila Moon. Feel free to accept or decline without repercussions, my friend! See sticky note for guidelines.
Please join me tomorrow for Skywatch Friday and Celebrate the Small Things.
Thank you for taking time out of your holiday weekend to listen my music selections. I trust everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving and made it through Black Friday unscathed. Today, let’s just relax and allow today’s music to fill our entire being as I continue with last Saturday’s theme of Thanksgiving & Gratitude.
“Let our hearts overflow with thankfulness…” ~ Colossians 2:7
“So while it’s true that Thanksgiving only comes but once a year, we should actually celebrate thanks each and every day. It’s just a matter of learning to live with a spirit of gratitude.” ~ Unknown
“Friendship isn’t a big thing – it’s a million little things.” ~Author Unknown
I cannot retell a joke correctly, unless it’s in front of my face written on an index card so I can recite it to my captive audience line by line. Any attempt to display humor ordinaire of my own would be a big flop. Simply put, I am not witty. Deep down, I envy people who easily use humor like a second language. It’s just native to who they are. There I admitted my short-comings. So, without pretense, I give to you borrowed laughs from across the net on this Friday Sillies…

It’s not often I get to play along with Hillary @ Feeling Beachie, but today is one of those days which I can indulge in her Follow Friday Four Fill-in Fun.
1) I always answer texts.
2) A love to fall asleep when it’s raining.
3) My dream pet would be a blonde Labrador named Yellow-dog. This name cracks me up and it comes from the movie, Funny Farm w/Chevy Chase. I highly recommend seeing it, if you haven’t.
4) I love sex more than chocolate. (Or ice cream!!) I swear THIS was the first thing that popped in my mind and yes, it’s an honest answer. That being said, if I’m gonna have sex then I have to have chocolate…dark chocolate, right? BTW, who came up with this question anyhow? lol Ahh, I see Purrfectly Pickles came up with questions 3 & 4. Well…way to go! 😀
Having once been a cat owner, I thought it would be cat-agiously hilarious to kick off the weekend using Cat inspired humor on Friday Sillies!
Two ROBINS were lying on their backs, BASKING in the sun. A mama cat and her kitten were walking by. The kitten complained, “Mama, I’m sooo hungry, what can we eat?” To which the mama cat, spying the two robins, replied, “How about some Baskin Robbins?”
JOKE 2: Q: Where does a cat hang its wash?
A: On a feline.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice.
I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For windowsills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I’ll always stay real cool
And keep the secret feline rule
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really ruled by CATS!

Words of Wisdom…When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar……..and the rootbeer.
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “yes.”
The professor then produced two cans of beer from under the table and poured the entire contents of the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. “Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things–your family, your children, your health, your friends, your favorite passions–things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
“The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else–the small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house, and fix the disposal.
“Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.” One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer represented. The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of rootbeers.”
