Tuesday Quote – Peace

Funnily enough, this was the quote on my calendar last Tuesday.
It really spoke to me. Although I’m sure that when these words were uttered by John F. Kennedy they were to do with the state of the world at the time, I looked beneath the words and I think that I will choose to apply them to my life. Continue reading

Emotional Rollercoasters – Part of Linda’s SOCS

Wow!
This prompt of Linda’s couldn’t have come at a more opportune (if you wish to look at it that way) time as the past couple of weeks has seen my emotions swing to extremes.

However, I am a fighter and I am strong. The dog will not drag me along after him whilst I hang gamely onto its leash in my attempts to reign him in. Continue reading
