Breathe and Let Go

Too much going on at work and too many hours spent in the office to post much these days.
So, I am quoting it up in the midst with good thoughts.

Here is one to think about...

"Breathe. Let go.
And remind yourself that this very moment
is the only one you know you have for sure."

Happy part of my challenge filled day. I met my Mom and Peyton Grace for lunch. We got on the subject of eye color. My Mom has hazel eyes, but for the first time in all my years of being around her, I noticed she has this amazing color of silver with a hint of lavender grey around the rim of hazel color that makes her eyes glow. She is often my silver lining so that made so much sense to see it in her eyes! My niece looked into my eyes. Most say I have blue eyes. She looked at me and told me my eyes were Aqua. That little one misses nothing. She by the way has this amazing color brown eyes that are so dark, yet you can see right through them. They speak truth deeply and solidly.

The most beautiful of all is that they both smile through their eyes!
I love that and pray for God to teach me to smile just so.

So, if you get the chance take a second
and try to smile just through your eyes!
It is sure to bring a smile from
deep within your heart. I tried it and it works.

I LOVE this!

Some day, in years to come, you will be wrestling with the great
temptation, or trembling under the great sorrow of your life. But the
real struggle is here, now, in these quiet weeks. Now it is being
decided whether, in the day of your supreme sorrow or temptation, you
shall miserably fail or gloriously conquer. Character cannot be made
except by a steady, long continued process.

-- Phillips Brooks (1835-1893) American Bishop

Wake Up!

"Like the elephant, we are unconscious of our own strength. 
When it comes to understanding the power we have to 
make a difference in our own lives, we might as well be asleep.
If you want to make your dreams come true, wake up. 
Wake up to your own strength. 
Wake up to the role you play in your own destiny. 
Wake up to the power you have to choose what you think, do, and say."
--Keith Ellis, Bootstraps

I think I just needed to find a great quote for the week to inspire!
