Quotes About Changes and Growing


This was a thought I had, so I went off on a search for quotes to hopefully find some good ones. I did find quite a few it seems, again I narrowed it down to ten. It was one of those thoughts I so often get about growing, changing and how all throughout our lives it happens constantly. Nothing stays the same, we have to deal with changes and grow with them. It really can’t be stopped, so let’s go with the flow and cope our very best is my opinion. Surely I can’t be the only one who thinks of these things, can I? I sure hope not and I do hope you kind readers enjoy the quotes I found…It’s something to ponder for the day! 🙂

You are my rock


You are my rock, sturdy and strong

Everything right, nothing is wrong

You heal with a touch

and help me so much

A man set apart

I knew from the start

You’d win my heart

And as time has passed

the feelings still last

You are you, you’re all I see

your strength nourishes me

The love I feel

is oh so real

It grows each day

in every way

A rock is strong it’s true

as are you …
