A Quote to live by...

Still doing a "clean sweep" on the office/scrapbook room. Not quite finished and since I went back to work, well my cleaning time was drastically cut. But I am getting there. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for sure.

I was going through a stack of papers and found a quote that someone must have given me, somewhere in time. I don't remember why, when or how. What I do know is that I read it yesterday and it spoke to me. IN A BIG WAY! Definitely something that leaves you thinking.

Thought I would share it with you. Here is the quote of the day, a thought to live by.

"Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character;
it becomes your destiny."

Happy week friends! Tired from going back to work today after a mini break following surgery. I will try to catch up with everyone tomorrow.

Wow. That cuts right to the heart. So true! We give a little here and a little there and before we know it, we're miles from where we should be!
Thanks for sharing!!
Love you!

You said it, daughter! And cuz! Little things grow into big things when they are given time and attention. Good or bad! I wonder why it is that we seem to "feed the bad dog more often than the good dog"? Think about it!

I am loving all the gems you are finding in your clean sweep. Keep them coming.

Words to live by, for sure!

Hey, if you're feeling well enough to go to work and to clean house, come on up...you can "clean sweep" MY house! (But you'd better rest up a bit beforehand...there's lots to do!) LOL

My Mom and Dad found this quote and gave it to me a few years back. It is so true!
