Quotes from Mother Teresa


I have always admired Mother Teresa and been drawn to her life, her work, her endless giving and most of all her non stop loving of people. She was a very wise person and she had a lot to share and say. I was browsing through some of her quotes for my own benefit and inspiration. Then it occurred to me that maybe you kind readers would like to see some of her quotes. I made a list of 10 that were beautiful and do need sharing. I am hoping you will enjoy them and feel as inspired as I do by her! 🙂
1.Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
2.Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
3. I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.
4.We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
5.If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
6.We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
7.Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
8.I found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurts only love.
9.Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody. I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
10.We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature–trees, flowers, grass–grows in silence; See the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls.

March is International Mirth Month


I just discovered March is International Mirth Month! 🙂 How very exciting is that I ask you? It just is such a wonderful thing, I hope everybody will choose to celebrate Mirth. It’s kind of a strange sounding word, isn’t it? What does mirth mean exactly? I found 10 words to nicely sum up mirth: Happiness, Laughter, Enjoyment, Merry Making, Delight, Joyfulness, Fun, Glee, Hilarity, Amusement.

Wow, but mirth is sure right up my alley and Autumn’s, too! It calls to us Twinnies a lot, quite often it seems! 🙂 How many of you kind readers are with us? I just am loving this whole idea of a whole entire month of mirth so much…It is making me smile and also the Twinnie is smiling and soon we are laughing! 🙂 Who among us doesn’t want to celebrate such a glorious thing as mirth? I hope that would be nobody, because the opposite of mirth is gloom.

Of course we all unfortunately know some gloomy and unhappy people, we can always try to get them to embrace mirth, right? It can work…Sometimes, but other times it does backfire. They actually could try to drag us into their dreaded doom and gloom. Some people sadly want to be miserable and we just plain can’t change them. What a terrible thing, but we tried and sometimes very hard, too.

What do we do then for them? Well, say a little prayer for these people, but kind of distance ourselves. It may not sound very nice, but we have to. If we hang around them too long it might affect us…We just can’t have that. I know, it really is a disappointment but we have to live our lives for the better, not the worst!

So get ready to join in the fun and joyfulness of mirth kind readers…There really is nothing as awesome. Start with a smile, it will go on from there…Give it a try, go ahead everybody! 🙂 Pretty soon you will be spreading mirth everywhere you go, I know I am!

Autumn says let’s celebrate this fine month of mirth and it’s really is starting right now! 🙂 I found a quote concerning mirth and I just have to share it: ” Mirth is like a flash of lightning, that breaks through a gloom of clouds, and glitters for a moment; cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity”~~Joseph Addison. He sure did write one lovely quote, didn’t he?

So there you have it kind readers, The Month of Mirth is here and let’s make the best of it! Share your thoughts if you would like, too because sharing really is fun and fun is mirth! 🙂 🙂

Quotes About Love by Gabby


I was looking at quotes concerning love. Why? *Well, today February 5th is/was/will always be my late husband Dave and my wedding anniversary. I lost him much too early on May 30, 2003, when cancer stepped in to bring a halt to our love story on this earth. So this one is dedicated to my one true love, my husband and my forever soulmate…I love you Dave, Happy Anniversary. Of course this love I shared with Dave is speaking to romantic love.

 Now, think about all the different type of loves wander in and out of our lives over the course of a lifetime. First, the love of our parents, love of siblings, love of nieces and nephews, love of friends, love of our pets, love of a boyfriend/girlfriend, love of a husband/wife, love for our children if we are blessed with them. We all want to love, as well as be loved. There is also a very important thing to remember, love yourself! If you don’t it makes it awfully difficult for anyone else to love you. So, I tried to find a nice variety of quotes about love to share with you kind readers. Please do enjoy them!  🙂
