I think Pinterest has made me realized how much I love quotes. I never thought I liked them so much, but they are so wonderful! I don't think I have a particular talent for decorating or organization of a home, but one thing I for sure know I want to have all over my home is inspirational quotes. That way, my family can see what I believe every day. Here are some of my favorites:
"Every lady loves a gentleman."
- for my sons :) ... And my husband, although he has mastered it. And to remind my daughters what they really want.
"It's up to you to find beauty in the ugliest days"
- My mom always encouraged us to be optimistic. I want my family to be optimistic and non- complainers!
"The first to apologize is the bravest. the first to forgive is the strongest. The first to forget is the happiest."
- For those inevitable squabbles!
"True love is not so much a matter of romance as it is a matter of anxious concern for the well- being of one's companion."
-Gordon B. Hinckley- for a loving marriage
"Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don't come until Heaven. But for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come."
- Jeffrey R Holland- for hope and happiness and optimism and faith
"It it's important, you'll find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse."
- For a reality check.
"If you are complaining about life, it is because you are only thinking of yourself."
- GBH- no complaining!
"Being a family means you are part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved the rest of your life (and forever). No matter what."
"When you feel like you're drowning in life, don't worry- your lifeguard walks on water"
- Jesus :)
"Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher."
- For making good friends.
"God has perfect timing. Never early, and never late. And it takes a little patience, and a lot of faith."
- For faith and patience
"Happy girls are the prettiest."
-Audrey Hepburn- for my daughters!
"Real men wear pink? No. Real men treat women right."
-For my sons and my husband. And my daughters too :)
“Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others...By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves.”
- President Gordon B. Hinckley (a longer version of the previous quote)
"Those who are the happiest never did have everything. Rather, they are grateful for everything they do have."
-For an attitude of gratitude
"Be so happy than when others look at you, they are happy too."
"In our house we choose happiness, welcome friends, listen and don't judge, are loyal, grateful, sincere, use our manners, share, smile, have fun, try new things, and respect each other."
"Let your faith be bigger than your fear."
"When life gets to hard to stand, kneel."
... There are soo many more I love but I fear it will get boring if I continue! Plus, it's a lot of back and forth typing. Soo I you want to see more, go to my Pinterest page.
