  7. What lovely quotes! My favorite is the one from Mr. Rogers. He always had such a beautiful vision of the uniqueness of every person, which was so empowering and full of hope. Thanks for sharing these. I’m visiting from Happiness is Homemade, and I am happy to learn about your blog linkup. I’ll drop a few of my own links today and visit some others, and be back next month. Thanks!

    1. Thanks Jennifer, I grew up watching Mr. Rogers and have fond memories. I’m so happy you found my link up. Link away, and I can’t wait to meet up with you every month. {{Hugs}}

  8. These are all great. One og my favorites is “Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time” ~John Lubbock.

    But one I identify most with is from Jane Austen: “What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.” I’ve not been able to find out where this is from–I suspect a letter to her sister.

  9. Visiting again to say thanks so much for linking up at the #UnlimitedLinkParty 119. Pinned.
