Inspirational Weekend Quotes

Yes, the times are tough. I am starting to feel a little beaten up by the news and friends losing their jobs. So I wanted to share with you some inspirational quotes to help you this weekend. These quotes have always helped me put things into perspective. I hope they can do the same for you. Watch out Hallmark Cards here I come!

And sings the tune without words
And never stops at all."

" It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end."

Even though you guys have it much worse, In Australia we too are starting to feel things getting worse.

But remember: Each day comes bearing it's own gifts. You just have to untie the ribbons....

I am a quote collector and love the one by Helen Keller. Yes...we can all overcome the suffering and change the way we look at things, as after all, we're creating our reality! I think there will be lots of good come out of these awful hard times, as we learn to appreciate what's really important in life and it's not houses, fancy cars, etc. My Aunt was thrilled recently to have paid off all her family's debt, and then was diagnosed with Metastic Breast Cancer! It changes everything! Blessings, Lisa

I have no inspirational quote I'm afraid* but to lift my spirits today I am going to go outside and "prune" bits of the garden in the sunshine! And breathe in the scent of Spring :o)

* My quotes tend to be more of the pithy variety!!
