Quote of the Day

“Silence is essential. Silence gives you the space to move inside yourself, to listen to your interior thoughts, and to examine how you perceive your world and its contents. Without silence all you do is react to the world around you as opposed to respond to it.”- Carolyne Myss

Happy Mother’s Day!

Some sweet and funny quotes for my wonderful mom, mom (in-law), grandma (in-law) and all of you wonderful mothers out there!

“A mother’s love liberates.” – Maya Angelou

“By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

“You couldn’t fool your mother on the foolingest day of your life if you had an electrified fooling machine.” – Homer Simpson

“Everybody wants to save the earth; nobody wants to help Mom with the dishes.” – P.J. O’Rourke

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us; when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” – Washington Irving

Happy New Year!

“We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.  Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.” -Ellen Goodman

“A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I’ve played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.”

-Edgar Guest


I know I’m a few days late, but with New Year’s Eve kicking off a long weekend, I feel like today is the real start to this new year!
