Food for Thought…

Posted on: August 29, 2014

It’s been awhile since I’ve indulged my love of Inspirational Sayings ….

Since It’s Friday, A great Way to Start the Weekend…

My Son comes home from VCU in time for dinner today! 


I have to say that my Father’s lessons in being rich in the things money can’t buy really stuck with me!

Inspirational quotes to motivate

I thought of our experience moving our son into his dorm where parents are higher floors had to wait in elevator lines for hours…

We were lucky enough to just use the stairs to go up one flight… We came across parents berating the young college volunteers, complaining about the wait times.  Upon hearing their outrage we all agreed that it’s all of what you make of it and that we would have spent the time goofing off and just being silly.  It’s no surprise that most of my family shares having Quality Time as a strong love language…

'Workout because you love your body, not because you hate it.'  #Quotation #Workout

A huge distinction in purpose and the thing that kept me going in my weight loss journey! 

Can’t believe Boston College won’t give Graduate students access to the gym , unless they pay $400 a year! 

Shame on Them!


I love being at this stage of wisdom in my life and seeing the puzzle pieces fitting together..

No one ever injured their eyesight by looking at the bright side of things  #life #quote #positive #motivation

So True…

wake up

As children ,we often did this, as adults we have to make a choice to do this….

Dear Readers, Have a Wonderful Weekend! 


I am grateful that will all these predictions of  winter being a bad one, that my husband is no longer in the home improvement industry and long gone are the days of measuring outside in all weather, with lights clipped to him and hot hands in his pockets.

I am grateful that my husband had the guts to take a huge leap outside his comfort zone and make the career switch, losing so much in the process of  the people. While we miss them, it doesn’t beat the relief the job was having on his body and soul.  Did I ever mention my Dear Readers, that my husband was hit by a large pick-up truck in the Home Depot parking lot several years ago and thrown back about 10 feet, leaving him with knee and hip issues?

I am grateful for his time in the home improvement industry, the fun we had and the things we learned along the way. It really was on the whole a good experience and one we will cherish.
