Leave an Inspirational Quote

My wife and I are going to be out and about for awhile and our blog is going to crawl to a snails space over the next several months. We will pick up where we left off in the fall. We will continue to take pics so that we can still track our progress. In the mean time; one of my few collections are inspirational quotes that I have collected over the years from various sources. These are all words that inspire me in one way or another. I will leave some and I will like for those who stop by to leave their own inspirational quotes as well. It will be interesting to collect the inspirational words of those who gather in our community. Until then Happy Gardening and Look forward to seeing your bountiful produce in the fall.

Ooooh, I like this, here's my two favorites.

"Never trouble trouble, until trouble troubles YOU."

And my mother's favorite way of telling me that it's ME, not where I'm at:
"Where ever you go, there you are."

Best to you both this summer. Good luck in your endeavors.

Ummmmmm, what?!?! Okay, I guess I'll just be hanging out watching for the updates. Hope you have a wonderful summer.

One favorite quote is on a little plaque that hangs above my desk. It describes me:

She believed she could, so she did.

Maya Angelou is one of my favorite authors and her quotes inspire me so much. There are so many that I love, so here's a link to a page that lists a lot of them.

But, my all time favorite quote by Maya that defines me is:

I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being.

Wishing you both peace and joy.
