OLW #34 ~ Choose

When I received the invitation for this gig, honestly, I freaked out. LOL! They're a bunch of fantastic girls, each with so much talent they so generously share word after word. So, yours truly can't help but feel a little bit intimidated. *grins*

Freaked out, I did. But of course, I accepted. For there is no secret that I adore OLW. I think adore is an understatement, actually.

So thank you OLW Girls!!

Here's my take on Word Up #34.

Chosen Words

Some Chosen Words to inspire.

We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives. Henry David Thoreau.

Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction. Antoine De Saint-Exupery.

No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it. Ellen Glasgow.

I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today. William Allen White.

Happiness... is not a destination: it is a manner of traveling.
Happiness is not an end in itself. It is a by-product of working,
playing, loving and living. Haim Ginott.

I love love love this photoless layout. Just a collection of my favorite quotes right this moment.

I made a lot of choices this year... and I am proud of them. Every single one of them. Thank you for the love, friends.
