You always find some really great quotes, I think my favorite this week is the Christina Rossetti quote. Work that has never begun is truly a sad state of affairs. Sitting on the sideline gets us no where.

The thing I liked about the flower Sharon was the vivid color. It looks like a Carnation to me. I also like Norman Cousins quote on hope. We should never lose hope. It is vital for living. Great selection you found for us all here with your picks.

Sharon, the other thing about letting our intuition be our guide is we have to listen to it. Often the gut feel is a true direction of the path to follow. So many wonderful quotes you have listed here!!

Hello JL,Kristen, Chris Ann, Carole and Gary thank you so much for your comments between the computer problems and the comments NOT showing up it is making it hard to know when anybody comments so I apologize to everyone. The computer will be at least fixed I hope on Monday. Have a great weekend.

Hi Cynthia-I was just thinking about you and want to come visit your posts on a regular basis. Been out of the loop with posting and my commenting has been hit and miss. Picked up additional work which is good but had computer problems which slowed the works down. Computer guy came Monday and got it working again but I'm going to add memory which he said would make it faster. Lord I hope so especially when I have to upload so many pic for my job. Hope you are doing well. Look for me real soon to pay you a visit to catch up. Have a wonderful day. <smile>
