I love quotes and every once in awhile I run across one that just pertains to things that I have recently read or what not. I hope you like it =)

"I may not be where I want to be, but I thank God I'm not where I used to be…I'm ok…and I'm on my way." This is my favorite inspiration for down days. It's from a friend who had ovarian cancer and is dealing with unexpected problems from the treatment.

Great quote, Cheryl, I like it. My sister always said "Any day above ground is a good day". She passed away about a month ago. I haven't thought of this since then but I have to wonder, what does she think now? Is that a sick thought? LOL I'm sure she would find the humor in it and I hope no one thinks I'm deranged for saying that.
We have to try and keep a good sense of humor or we'll never make it.
God Bless

Hello sNerTs1, Quotes can give inspiration and lift our spirits. I once heard someone say,"All days are good. Some are just better than others". When days are not good, I don't lose hope. Tomorrow will be better.

My dad used to say, everyday that I can open my eyes and roll out of bed is a good day! Its true actually. We need to take blessings in the smallest of things and all those things that make it a "bad" day, dont seem to visit us as easily because we are busy living!

Thanks Jeffrey =) It was nice to read and also thanks for the friendship *Hugs*

Have a Beautiful Day ~ Cheryl

My daughter suggested this quote. Crying is God's way of giving a gentle rain to the weary soul. Made me smile.

I was on a very shaky emotional high when I started it. After my third 'Aha' moment I teetered on the brink.
I knew I was in trouble. I couldn't sit still, and I had to write something out. As I continue I grew frantic Although I was writing It wasn't sure what it was, I just wrote.
As I was hand writing a Christmas message for mom, and corrected the V. Vacations, I Sat up and had that cartoon frame lightbuld turn on as I had it come into focus. That was when I answered Dr. Gary's 'What is your moto?
I burst into tears when the words released my self hate, loathing and anger. I would like as many as possable to read this. It was painful to write it, but now my throat is raw, my head hurts, my arms hurt, my back hurts and there is chest pain. that is what happens when 47 years of pain vanishes suddenly. My eyes hurt and I don't feel well, but I am happy.

This came at the bottom of an email awhile back - just around the time that fire department let a house burn down because the owners hadn't paid a fee. The sender was a hospital pharmacist and the email very dry information.

"If you are trying to fight fire with fire, keep in mind the fire department uses water."

OMG ha ha ha!!! I like that one. I might just have to use it LOL

jayabee52 2010-11-08 15:12:27 -0600 Report

of course it works a lot better with the spoken word because then the recipient can hear the vocal inflections in a way that printed word cannot copy. I usually have a smart-alec tone in my voice when I say it.

Please feel free to use it as you desire.
