“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.” smiley-face

– Phyllis Diller


When I ran across this quote (I don’t remember where I read it though!) I immediately thought of all of my Project 365 pictures. Taking photos each day has taught me that although life can be stressed and crazy, I have a lot of blessings in my life and that’s exactly what this week’s quote is about!

“In the plain, everydayness of our lives, a million little blessings await us.”
– Barb Johnson

“We need time to dream,
Time to remember and
Time to reach the infinite,
And time to be.”
~ Gladys Taber

snow-cardI received this lovely card in the mail today from my Secret Sipper. (Like a Secret Sister but through the tea ministry I belong to at church)

Anyways, she sent me this card and I read it and put it aside. Then I picked it up later and noticed the quote inside and it’s perfect for how I have felt lately.

“Those of us who have hope have everything.”

I got side tracked from my usual meme of posting a quote on Mondays during the holidays but now that life has calmed down a bit and is slowly getting back to “normal” I’ll pick them back up again. Though I am going to change it from “Quote Monday” to “Quote of the Week” so that if I am busy and can’t get it posted on Monday, I haven’t missed it all together.

This week’s quote is one I found while looking for some quotes and digital scrapbooking kits related to pets so that I could scrapbook some pages of Noah and Noel. This quote, along with the picture, makes my heart smile.

Since it’s December 1st and we are in the slide towards Christmas (yikes, I have almost nothing bought yet!) I thought I’d post a quote to remind us of the spirit of the holiday season.
