Quoteable Tuesdays

Woah ladies....I have a post today!  I feel great...its amazing what a little quiet time & refreshing of life can do to you!  Never go without checking out your life & marriage for as long as I did.  Either it will lead to a very unsatisfied life or, even worse, divorce.  I'm already feeling much better than I expected.

So, its time for some quotes.  I will put in some for those of us who are (or are about to be) mothers & those who are "empty nested" or yet to be blessed with a little one!

 A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.

A baby is God's opinion that life should go on
 Carl Sandburg

  A two-year old is kind of like having a blender, but you don't have a top for it.
   Jerry Seinfeld

Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.
Elizabeth Stone

If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.
Vincent van Gogh

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
  Ashley Smith

If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right, you'll probably never do much of anything.
  Win Borden

So there you go!  Hope these make you laugh & also make you think!  I hope to continue to give you all a little more this week.  Remember to live your life with meaning & never let the clouds you see allow you to forget the sunshine that's ready to break through behind them after the storm has passed!
