A Couple of Quotes to Make You Think

I have had these two quotes sitting next to my computer for a couple of weeks. I have read and reread them, thought about them, and I am finally sharing them.

This is from my mother’s yearbook, in 1935-36:

“If I do not keep step with my companions it is because I hear a different drummer. Let a man step to the music he hears, however measured or however far away.”  Thoreau


“Your life is a learning process—you can become wiser only from learning. Sometimes you might have to attract making a painful mistake to learn something important, but after the mistake you have far greater wisdom. Wisdom cannot be bought with money – it can only be acquired through living life. With wisdom comes strength, courage, knowing, and an ever-increasing peace.” Daily Teachings The Secret

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.



About Marilyn

I am a "retired senior" (I've been a school librarian and library tech for a government research facility) who is now pursuing a dream of a home business sewing bags of all sorts, crafting and being the creative person I have always wanted to be. I grew up in the center of Illinois and dreamed of actually living back in the state of Colorado where I was born and lived till the age of 7. That dream came true when I met my husband of 43 years while working together in Estes Park. I am interested in alternative medicine, continuing the good health I've always had, while returning to the pre-processed food era of: eating well, losing weight, and using products that do not harm the environment, me, my family and friends. I am for labeling GMO’s, using sustainable products, organics and finding solutions to everyday problems, like colds and sore muscles, using natural remedies. I have a positive attitude that has helped through a very hard year and will bring forth a life that will be full and happy. My family is wonderful and I am a happy lady, wife, mother, and grandma.
