Tuesday Blog Hop: Encouragement

It's Tuesday! Time again for another Blog Hop. This week's theme is Encouragement.

As soon as I heard the theme, I thought of a book that I had received a long time ago. When I graduated from high school, my best friend gave me a book called Leaves of Gold. The book is full of quotations and I have treasured now for 28 years.

The first line in the Foreward of the book says it all :
"Poor indeed is the man whose mind is not enriched by some phrase of lasting truth and beauty which serves to restore his soul in the exigencies of life"

Here is one of my favorite quotes:
"Doust thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff that life is made of"

I always try to remember that the best time are the times spent with friends and family! For those are the times that brighten my life and make me look forward to the future.

Brighten your day and spend some time on the Blog Hop!
