Knowing her competition
of mood du jour,
she could not resist
the spotlight’s allure.
Aghast at her failure,
no call for encore,
she hid behind
a double-locked door.
She could never outdo
another one’s win.
She’s a self-made winner 
with a counterfeit spin.

Happy Ground Hog Day

You can enjoy Winter or celebrate Spring,


but, just remember:


Perspective is everything.

Trust


To withhold the truth is a secret lie,
a broken heart can testify.
Does the burden lie within the believer,
or perhaps the blame is in the deceiver.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
can never put trust together again.

Quote Challenge, Day Three


Today is the third and final day of the Three Day Quote Challenge. For me, this was a challenge. To choose just three favourite quotes was very difficult. I love quotes, as I usually find strength or wisdom in them. Of course, others may make me upset. However, those make me seek wisdom.

The quote I chose today is from the wisdom of the Dalai Lama. I believe that he is another wise man given to mankind to teach and guide us. It is up to us to learn our lessons well.

"Our prime purpose in life is to help 
others. And if you can't help them, 
at least don't hurt them."
~Dalai Lama

On this final day of the quote challenge, I nominate:
2. Les of Ink Interrupted
3. JP of A Quiet Corner

The rules of the challenge are simple. They are as follows:
1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

I hope you have enjoyed this challenge. Please feel free to share your favourite quotes!

Quote Challenge, Day 2


This is Day Two of the quote challenge. Thank you, again, PrincessJM, for nominating me for this quote challenge. I enjoy words, especially wise words strung together with meaning.

Today I am sharing a quote that I truly believe. I try to be conscious of these wise words every day. I know my dear friend, Julia, believes this, too. We have talked about it. 

Leave this world a little better than you found it.
~Lord Robert Baden-Powell


For Day 2 of the Quote Challenge, I nominate:
1. Janet of The Cat on My Head
2. Linda of Senior Adventures
3. Ellen of 15andmeowing

The rules of the challenge are simple. They are as follows:
1. Post for three consecutive days.

2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

The sharing of quotes and learning make this challenge fun. But, it is the sharing of friendship that makes it special. Hugs!
