I own a fabulous collection! Not jewelry. Not art. Just words…quotations I have copied in my journals for 20 years or so. When I read someone’s words that cause a responding leap in my heart saying “YES, YES< so true. I get it!!” then I write it down in my journal that year. Now in my stack of about 20 journals, there are so many wonderful quotations! From time to time I’ll share some with you. Enjoy!
So, here are a few for today, July 14, 2016.
