Fun Monday - # 30 Inspirational Quotes

Many thanks to Robin @ Pensieve for being the hostess this week. She always has "a way with words" and I am truly envious !!

Her assignment for this week is:
Quotable quotes and words that inspire.

Each morning when I get up (and make that trip to the bathroom - hey, doesn't everyone make that their first stop?), one of the first things I see is -

It hangs right beneath the mirror in the bathroom. A reminder (which I sometimes desperately need ...)

Believe in yourself.
and what others
think won't matter.


Next is one I have learned the hard way ...

A daughter is a daughter
for life.
A son is a son
until he takes a wife.

I have two sons ... who don't always think of their mother first ....

Now ... just a bit of randomness

"Dance as if no one were watching,

sing as if no one were listening,

and live every day as if

it were your last"

- Irish Proverb

May the road

rise up to meet you,

May the wind be always

at your back,

May the sun shine warm

upon your face,

And the rains fall soft

upon your fields,

And until we meet again,

May GOD hold you

in the palm of his hand.

- An Old Irish Verse

May you blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow,

and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

My goal in life is to be the person my grandchildren think I am.

Home is where the heart is.

Friendships are tied together with heartstrings.

I don't need love ... just chocolate!

Housework makes you ugly.

I hate 7 letter words - *Cooking* *Washing* *Dusting* *Ironing*

I serve 3 meals - Microwave, Frozen, Take-Out

Cherish today, Dream tomorrow, Live today.

Love, Laughter and Friends are always welcome.

Friendship, like love lasts Forever.

Live well, Laugh often, Love much.

So ... just how many frogs do I have to kiss?

You're never fully dressed til you wear a smile.

Dear GOD, If you can't make me skinny, make all my friends fat!

Do you want to speak to the man in charge or the woman who knows what's going on?

I can only please one person a day and THIS ISN'T YOUR DAY !

Sisters are friends for Life.

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.

The game of love is never called on account of darkness or rain.

Most of us need love the most when we're the most unlovable.

Now, some seriousness ...

Love is patient

Love is kind

Love does not envy

Love does not boast

Love is not proud

Love is not rude

Love always trusts

Love always hopes

Love never fails.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

- John F. Kennedy

Today, I pray for peace in the hope that tomorrow I won't have to.

Make sure you take a few moments to visit Robin and see what everyone else has chosen as their favorite quotes and inspirational words.
