- Warm beds. There is nothing like snuggling into a warm bed with a good book at the end of a long day. Fuzzy socks help too. :)
- Lotions. I have many lotions and potions. Many of the with scents; and when my skin gets cracked and chapped around this time of year, it is nice to have something to both smooth and soothe the skin.... while making you smell good. Wow I sound rather like an advertisement. Oh, well.
- Friends. I am awfully thankful for my friends. Anytime I need help, even on something as simple as a math problem, they are there to help me out. And that's really nice to know.
- Quotes. I love quotes. It is amazing how someone you don't even know, someone from another place or even another time, can feel how you feel, and express it ever so much nicer than you ever could. The quotes that just get to you. And I love finding those. I am a major quote collector. I have them on my desktop, on my chalkboard, on my cork board, and in a notebook. Here are a few I have liked lately: "
"Once you face and understand your limitations, you can work with them, instead of having them work against you and get in your way, which is what they do if you ignore them, whether you realize it or not. And then you will find that, in many cases, your limitations can be your strengths." -The Tao of Pooh
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." -Philippians 4:13
"What day is it?"asked Pooh. "It's Today!" squeaked Piglet. "My favorite day," said Pooh. -Winnie the Pooh
"Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts." -Charles Dickens
"Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less." -C.S. Lewis
And, finally, "People are often unreasonable and self-centered: forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives: be kind anyway.
If you're successful, you'll win some false friends and some true enemies: succeed anyway.
If you're honest and frank, people may cheat you: but be honest anyway.
What you spend years building, someone can destroy overnight: build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous: be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow: do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough: give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it's between you and God, it was never between you and them anyway."
Do you have a favorite quote(s)? I hope you have a lovely end of the week!
