hey buddy . . I love your quote. It helps me Keep Going to think this way 

“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 

Two quotes from me, yep me

“Don’t be afraid to dream. Don’t be afraid to fail. Keep your responsibilities in the mix. Set priorities and then go to work! Reflect often. Make changes if necessary.”     Jack Fussell 

“When I don’t know what to do, I run, so I run a lot”     Jack Fussell 

Some Bible verses I appreciate 

“​ I can endure all these things through the power of the one who gives me strength.”     Phillipians 4:13

“but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary they will walk and not be faint”     Isaiah 40:31

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”     2 Timothy 4:7





Changes come slow and that’s cool

“​People think that you have to do something huge, like go to Africa and build a school, but you can make a small change in a day. If you change Wednesday, then you change Thursday. Pretty soon it’s a week, then a month, then a year. It’s bite-size, as opposed to feeling like you have to turn your life inside out to make changes.”     Hoda Kotb

This matters to me. It helps me keep on and on and on – it’s a quote 

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 

When I was one and twenty

By A. E. Housman

When I was one-and-twenty

       I heard a wise man say,

“Give crowns and pounds and guineas

       But not your heart away;

Give pearls away and rubies

       But keep your fancy free.”

But I was one-and-twenty,

       No use to talk to me.


When I was one-and-twenty

       I heard him say again,

“The heart out of the bosom

       Was never given in vain;

’Tis paid with sighs a plenty

       And sold for endless rue.”

And I am two-and-twenty,

       And oh, ’tis true, ’tis true.

Beautiful quote from Forrest Gump himself . . . . . 

 “I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floatin’ around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happenin’ at the same time. I miss you Jenny. If there’s anything you need. I won’t be far away.”

A quote from Dr. Seuss

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened”

I must keep that in mind. I wish I had lived more in the moment. Working at doing that with the time left for me.

A quote – For Your Consideration 

Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work.”

Gordon B. Hinckley

President Hinckley was known, even at the age of 95, as a tireless leader who always put in a full day at the office and traveled extensively around the world to mix with Church members, now numbering nearly 13 million in 171 nations.

Purpose – for your consideration 

It is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
