Great Quote

Hi all!

I was cleaning off my studio bulletin board today and found this inspirational quote that I must have put up a long time ago...I still love it!

"Thank God--every morning when you get up--that you have something to do, which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you a hundred virtues, which the idle never know."
Charles Kingsley


Amen!~

Yes, so~so true!
I thank God for my legs when I complain about having to walk 5 blocks to/from the bus stop each morning to work. I thank God I have a safe and comfortable house when I see clutter that needs to be put away (including a tiny office overflowing with beads, ephemera, glue, paint....).
Thank you, Chris for reminding me of what is REALLY important today!

Soooooooooo true...... I love that... I am thankful that I am able to work and when I find myself complaining I remember when I was so sick a few years ago and could not walk across the floor.. So I remind myself that I am blessed by God to be this old (hahah) and still out and about.. You have a wonderful weekend my friend and ejoy your time off... I am headed to western Oklahoma to visit a lavender farm... I am going to try my hand at lavender... sooooooooo I am looking forward to that...
