Thankful November

Encouraging Words
I feel grateful for those who speak encouraging words, even if they don't know exactly WHO their audience is.
I came across a saying, and felt inspired and hope to make it a part of my life. I'm sure the woman who said it didn't know she would be inspiring someone like me, maybe she did, but I'm grateful that she said it.
"Life is not a race--but indeed a journey. Be honest. Work hard. Be choosy. Say "thank you," "I love you," and "great job" to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than a pen and paper. Love your life and what you've been given; it is not accidental--search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself--plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you've been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment."

Melzie, no, we didn't move. I just feel peace where we're living. I haven't checked on YOU for a while either. I'm SUCH a bad blog reader friend.
