“I have spread my dreams…”

"I have spread my dreams beneath your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."  -W.B. Yeats I have been thinking about dreams a lot lately, dreams, and goals, and plans, and the future in general.  My own and other people's.  Life's work and life's worth.   Can your dreams ever be just too … Continue reading “I have spread my dreams…”

“I like to think of life in terms of…”

Ironically, I made time for myself to read for a little while yesterday - following my own advice from the previous post - and what I ended up reading related exactly to the "out of control circumstances" that I referred to the day before.  This is a long passage from Nicholas Sparks' Three Weeks with … Continue reading “I like to think of life in terms of…”

“Being rich is having…”

Being rich is having money; being wealthy is having time. -Stephen Swid, executive (b. 1941) Nowadays, with so many of us worried about the economy, and many of us trying to stick to tighter budgets during the holiday season, I thought that this quotation was appropriate. The interesting thing though is that while there may … Continue reading “Being rich is having…”

A little post because it is almost Thanksgiving.

It is delightfully easy to thank God for the grace we ourselves have received, but it requires great grace to thank God always for the grace given to others. -James Smith Ooh, isn't that just a remarkable idea? It isn't enough to find the things in our own lives that we are thankful for, we … Continue reading A little post because it is almost Thanksgiving.

What if our love…

What if our love never went away? What if it's lost behind words we could never find? -Daughtry (What About Now) I really like the song "What About Now" by Daughtry.  Actually, the entire album, Daughtry, has songs with great lyrics.  They're so poetic and romantic.  I was in the car earlier today when this … Continue reading What if our love…

“We are each of us angels…”

"We are each of us angels with only one wing.  And we can only fly while embracing each other."  - Lucian de Croszonza This is such a beautiful idea to me.  I don't know why so many of us fight it, why so many of us are too stubborn or too proud to ask for … Continue reading “We are each of us angels…”

“He, who every morning plans…”

"He, who every morning plans the transactions of the day, and follows that plan carries a thread that will guide him through a labyrinth of the most busy life." - Victor Hugo  A while ago, I wrote a post in response to a poem with a very similar message.  HERE  And today, as I am beginning my … Continue reading “He, who every morning plans…”

“Man’s love is of man’s life a part…”

"Man's love is of man's life a part; It is woman's whole existence!" Byron Comment and discuss, please! ~Melissa 🙂

“Remember there’s no such thing…”

"Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end." - Scott Adams  Random Act of Kindness and Gratitude #5 - This act is something that my mother does, but I only recently learned about.  Many people clip coupons, but not all of us do.  There is … Continue reading “Remember there’s no such thing…”

“What have you done for me lately…”

"What have you done for me lately? Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah!" I have had this Janet Jackson song stuck in my head for days!  Really.  Days. But, it has actually got me thinking about how we are all looking for the newer, bigger, better versions of everything - fashion, technology, and so many other things … Continue reading “What have you done for me lately…”
