A Good Fence For Thursday . . .

Maya Angelou Thoughts

I've learned that no matter what happens,
or how bad it seems today,
life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,
you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that even when I have pains,
I don't have to be one.

I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.

People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.

 this one photo

to enjoy each day

Hi Lynne, I read BJ's post of thanks to a Michigan blogger for the bittersweet (a most wonderful and general gift) and I had to see who this Michigan blogger was, for you see, I am one, too! I'm over in Lansing and from your posts it looks as though you are on the west side -- maybe Montague (home of the rail trail!) I just wanted to say your photos are lovely and your posts very thoughtful. It's always nice to see other Michigan bloggers! So, hello!

I have always loved this sentiment and especially today it seems very relevant to me ....I am going to write it in my journal and read it daily! Thank you my friend. :)

What a heart-warming and thought-provoking post. We all need to remember this every day. I just came by your blog, Lynne, and would like to follow along. I live in Ontario, Canada where the sun shines often no matter what the season. :) Deb

Beautiful thought to go along with your beautiful picture.

I especially like the part about life going on.

It does.

Even though it would be nice sometimes, to stop this merry go round and get off!

Have a sweet weekend.

Warm wishes ~
