Monday's special

Posted by Claudia Moser on 12:05 PM in ,

“I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life. I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
 Maya Angelou

Merry Christmas everyone!



Seems like there is always something to learn! A great message and quote. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

That's a wonderful message - so many true words here and every year the Christmas lights are tangled too! Have a wonderful Christmas and thank you for your visits and lovely comments too!

Merry Christmas Claudia. All the best to your and your family.

Dearest Claudia,
Oh, very important message and I am impressed☆☆☆ I DO agree with you that "I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life."
I Hope you are having a blessed Christmas with all of your family.

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
