Thankful for Memories and Reminders

I am thankful today for memories; the joyful and the painful
Learn from the painful
Gain strength from the joy
Let go of that which robs your dreams,
that which weighs you down
Hold on to that which gives you purpose,
that  which gives you wings

Here are a few Memory Snapshots and Reminders from the past of this Blog:

It's never too late to become who you were meant to be.
~ George Eliot
Don't wait for the perfect time to start. 
There is no perfect time,
except that today is a good day to believe;
a good day to take one tiny step towards your dream. 
Remember the Beauty of Who YOU are!
Some of the Beauty of You
is the Pain of You
Some of Your Strength is the Broken
~Connie Ruth Christiansen
Dance on Your Disappointments
Change the "D" to an "H" and think
What if this Disappointment is His appointment for something wonderful to happen?
Take time to
Notice and
Enjoy the Little Things
They are perhaps the most precious of all life's gifts

Today I am Thankful for CUTE!
is bigger than death
is more powerful than a lie
pushes out all fear
comes in the morning
What might be possible if.......
Wishing you a day of Happy Memories!

Today I am Thankful for Soft

 Today it crossed my mind how many things of life are soft; both physical and otherwise soft; and how very thankful I am that God created soft; and how different life would be without the comfort of it, the joy of it.
 A soft breeze, gentle on the skin
Softly falling rain
Softly falling snow
A soft pillow to lay the head upon to sleep; to dream
Soft blankets
Soft clothing
A soft thing to caress, to stroke, to entangle one’s fingers in
Soft kitty, puppy fur
Softly curling hair
A soft word spoken in comfort, or to stir the heart to passion
Soft kiss
Soft touch
A soft note of music moving the heart to smile, to tears
Soft sounds
Soft heart
As I write this list of soft, my heart which was troubled early on today, is gentler now.
Thank You for soft.

And for my readers; may your day be filled with soft gentle things that comfort you and bring you joy.

~ Connie
