On This Day

on this day
these words say it best....
Especially as time goes by.

I thank all that made a visit,
phone call, sent cards, emails,
sent a gift and even thank
those that remembered me in prayer
or special thoughts
that I may not even be aware of.

A new day begins
and I see words I copied upon my desk
and must remember.

~~There is only one way to happiness and that is
to cease worrying about things
which are beyond the power of your will~~

So very true Ernestine.

I hope this all enveloped you in love and fortitude.

Since I, too, am one who worries too much, I should also write these words on my desk. You write such a wonderful blog...looking forward to more in 2014.

The Epicitus guy was pretty smart.

Much love to you dear Ernestine… may the New Year unfolding bring with it joy and comfort my friend.

Stopped by to say hello! Hope your Christmas was filled with joy.

You always have the best quotes. How true the Epictetus is, yet it's so very hard not to worry, isn't it?
