Quotes to Live By


This was such an adventure in quote reading I need to say! I was thinking about things we should do, things we need in this life, “quotes to live by” so to speak. I found so many good, positive and important quotes and I just had to share 10 of them with you kind readers. The hardest part was narrowing the 100 or so wonderful quotes down to these 10! I really hope you all find something here that you find useful today, inspires you and makes you think and also most of all… Makes sense! 🙂

Love on a Beach


No matter what our age

we’ll just turn another page

and remember our beach

it’s still within our reach

For days may pass

but our love will last

We smile and remember the smiles

walking many miles

in the sand

hand in hand

your fingers laced through mine

so fine and rather divine

love on a beach

it’s a lesson to teach

for those who want to learn

and pages to turn

that love is the best

forget all the rest …
