    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.

    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Two of my favorites:

    Quilting is my passion. Chocolate is a close second.

    And one of my all time favorites that has helped me through many a tough situation. . .

    It is better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!!!(reportedly by Mark Twan)It was the first thing to come to my mind

    A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you've forgotten the words.

    Whatever you are -- Be a good one!
    A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.
    Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
    If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies
    I was laughing so hard I had tears running down my legs
    The heart ages last
    I have gone to find myself. If I am not back before I return, keep me here.
    Taste every moment and live it out loud.
    Don't cry because it is over - Smile because it happened
    No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is won't make you cry.
    The babbling brook would lose its song if you removed the rocks.
    Everything is ok in the end! If not, then it's not the end
    It's the silence between the notes that makes the music.
    When you were born you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.
    I believe that friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.
    Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
    The bluebird carries the sky on its back.
    I've learned that the Lord didn't do it in one day - what makes me think I can?
    When it is the darkest, you can see the stars
    If your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    I collect sayings!!!!! Edie
    Home is where the rags of your life are turned into quilts, lemons become lemonade and a few extra pounds are simply welcomed as "more of you to love."
    I am so confused. I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse."

    BELIEVE

    Home is where your heart is.
    Life is what happens when you are making other plans
    Home is where you story begins
    Handle every situation like a dog...if you can't eat it or chew on it...pee on it and walk away.
    Sometimes you are the bug..sometimes you are the windshield
    We're old, we're tired; but ...we ain't ugly
    A plump wife, and a big barn...never did any man harm
    All love that has not friendship for it's base, is like a mansion built upon sand. Ella Wheeler Wilcox
    Sooner or later we all quote our mothers.
    Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

    When a door closes, we look at it longingly, not knowing that there are other doors opening for us. (Mark Twain and Helen Keller)

    Here's some quotes from our family archives:
    A blind man on a galloping horse will never see it! (you all know what this refers to!)
    Eat for the hunger that comes. (We are not a thin family!!)
    No souls were saved after 10 minutes. (My grandfather was not a patient church- goer)

    Blessed be the children of the piece makers for they shall inheret the quilts.

    I was sad because I had no shoes, til I saw a man who had no feet.

    Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day - teach him how to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime.

    Give me you convictions if you have them, but keep your doubts to yourself - for I have enough of my own.
