Thoughts ......



The events in my personal life that have transpired over the past few weeks has forced me to question everything, the little things that don't matter in the scale of things, and the things that do matter and just the blessing of being able to wake each morning and be surrounded by those people I love. 

I am very sentimental and just adore quotes that actually mean something.  I think the above quote sums it all up really......  By Marcus Aurelius

Feel free to use it anyway you wish and know that I created it for you with love.

From one sentimental girl to another your quote is lovely and so true. Waking up each day, breathing on your own, seeing the faces of your loved ones, hearing their voices....all blessings.
I wish you better times ahead.

You are such a big softie and we wouldn't have you any other way. I know that when I look into the smiling face of our girls and grandgirls I know that I am truly blessed and privileged to be in their lives.

Dear Fee, I hope that all is OK with you. Sometimes life throws us a curveball that will make us reasses things and appreciate what we do have and those special people in our lives. A couple of months ago our family was hit by a curve ball. We did not see it comming but have all taken a step back to appreciate what really does matter. Take strength from those who care, take pride in what you love, see with open eyes and love everyday. xx

Keep safe Fee...these words are just so very true...

I guess most of us have those curveball occasions in our lives at one time or another, and words like these can be what see us through to the other side. Wishing you every best thought that all will be well with you and yours as you continue to think on these words.
Take care.
Big hugs and love xx

Hi Fee, thank you, it is beautiful & the reminder is something we can always used as it is so easy to get wound up in the little dramas that have no value in the big picture. I hope all is well with you & family. Tracee xx

Hi.
I would like to say how I appreciate your blog, your posts, and your lovely words.
And... I use to say that... "If I woke up this morning, is because HE had something special for me". Even when in a day like today, the news weren't be so good.
At the end of the day, I found this post, that made me happy.
A hug full of good wishes to you.
Sincerely
