Robin is our hostess for Fun Monday this week. The theme is: Quotable quotes and words that inspire. So here’s some of my inspiration…
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree; In cocoons, a hidden promise: butterflies will soon be free! In the cold and snow of winter there’s a spring that waits to be, Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see. – Hymn of Promise (Methodist Hymnal)
To have a mother’s sensibility, you don’t need to be female; you don’t even have to have children. You just need to have a soul that cares about the future more than you care about yourself. That’s what mothering is–laying down your life for the young so they can grow up into full people. – Sally Field
and from my recently discarded favorite show on CBS:
Jake Green: Did you ask Mom?
Johnston Green: Son, I’m 59 years old, I was mayor of this town since the Carter administration, I’m a retired Army Ranger, and I’m a combat veteran. Of course I asked your mother.
