Words of wisdom from St. Therese

She said, “May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that you are born of faith in yourself and others. May you see the gifts that you received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.” ST. Therese

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.
To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

-Christian D. Larson

Believe in yourself & all that you are. Know that there is something inside of you that is bigger than any obstacle.

-Christian D. Larson

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ” I used everything you gave me.”

-Erma Bombeck

Live simply, have infinite faith & unconditional love. Use your God given talents & always find the humor in everything- Teri Carpenter

 

All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten

by Robert Fulghum

All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten.
ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW about how to live and what to do
and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not
at the top of the graduate-school mountain, but there in the
sandpile at Sunday School. These are the things I learned:

Share everything.

Play fair.

Don’t hit people.

Put things back where you found them.

Clean up your own mess.

Don’t take things that aren’t yours.

Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.

Wash your hands before you eat.

Flush.

Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.

Live a balanced life – learn some and think some
and draw and paint and sing and dance and play
and work every day some.

Take a nap every afternoon.

When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic,
hold hands, and stick together.

Be aware of wonder.
Remember the little seed in the styrofoam cup:
The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody
really knows how or why, but we are all like that.

Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even
the little seed in the Styrofoam cup – they all die.
So do we.

And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books
and the first word you learned – the biggest
word of all – LOOK.

 

When I miss when my kids were little….

On the days when I miss when my kids were little and wish that I could do it ALL again, I realize is soon the days when I will be called “Grandma”. I will have that opportunity to do it all again – except this time around, Grandpa’s chocolate cake might have to be for breakfast lol…..                                                                                                                                           Mama Carp

 

You are Beautiful ♥

Let us be gentle with our words because often times they are so impactful they become someone’s reality and view of themselves. There is beauty in everyone! Open your eyes and see beauty in all things. In a world full of judgment may we find and share a little more love. May our words lift up not tear down.  You are perfectly imperfect and beautiful in all ways! You were fearfully and wonderfully made! You are beautiful!    – Rae Birdsall
