Hello - I merged "my favorite quotes, quotes and mom's website" into one thread.

Those are all great quotes.My favorite is something my mother told me one day when I was pulling dandilions in the yard.
:daisy: A Weed Is Just A Flower Looking For A Home:daisy:
So now I don't let the dandilions get to me anymore.Well not as much.

Hi Emmajean,
I like that quote of your mothers. It is true. Lots of flowers were once weed, but now they are just under control, some of them.
I love dandelions, so many things can be used of that plant. I use to put the dandelion juice on my warts until they left.
Thanks for sharing,
Petunia :*

So true... We all need to live by it.
Hopefully this will bring a smile to your face

Take Hold of Every Moment

A friend of mine opened his wife's underwear drawer and picked up a
paper wrapped package:

"This, - he said - isn't any ordinary package."

He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box.

"She got this the first time we went to New York, 8 or 9 years ago.
has never put it on. Was saving it for a special occasion.
Well, I guess this is it. He got near the bed and placed the gift box
next to the other clothings he was taking to the funeral house, his
had just died. He turned to me and said:

"Never save something for a special occasion. Every day in your life
a special occasion".

I still think those words changed my life.

Now I read more and clean less.

I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.

I spend more time with my family, and less at work.

I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up
to, not survived through. I no longer keep anything. I use crystal
glasses every day. I'll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if
feel like it.

I don't save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it
I want to. The words "Someday..." and "One Day..." are fading away
my dictionary. If it's worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to
listen or do it now. I don't know what my friend's wife would have
if she knew she wouldn't be there the next morning, this nobody can
tell. I think she might have called her relatives and closest friends.
She might call old friends to make peace over past quarrels. I'd like
think she would go out for Chinese, her favorite food. It's these
things that I would regret not doing, if I knew my time had come.

I would regret it, because I would no longer see the friends I would
meet, letters... letters that i wanted to write

"One of this days".

I would regret and feel sad, because I didn't say to my brothers and
sons, not times enough at least, how much

I love them.

Now, I try not to delay, postpone or keep anything that could bring
laughter and joy into our lives.

And, on each morning, I say to myself that this could be a special

Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.

If you got this, it's because someone cares for you and because,
probably, there's someone you care about.

If you're too busy to send this out to other people and you say to
yourself that you will send it "One of these days", remember that "One
day" is far away... or might never come...

This TANTRA came from India. No matter if you're superstitious or not,
spend some time reading it.
It holds useful messages for the soul.

This is my newest favorite--and I have many. A good friend/strong Christian had this at the bottom of a recent e-mail and I just fell in love with it as I was ROFLMAO.


Never retreat. Never surrender. Never cut a deal with a dragon.

No armor? Unclean life? Then do not mess in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

A wierd place
I got a line that changed my life/put into perspective...

i was at a real low place had lost my dad,
my mom was really siblings had turned on me,
family problems...job going nowhere..
just everything crashing around me..

the movie was "Shawshank Redemption"
and the one of the characters said..
"you either have to get busy living or get busy dying"

I chose to get up and start living...and my worlds come crashing around me 3 more times since..and i keep going back to it...

im currently taking baby steps to recover over the last crash
