Hello my friends,
I hope you are having a good new year. It has been especially cold in our neck of the woods. We have kept the heaters burning pretty much all day and most of the night.
I found a couple of quotes that I really like and that I think will help me keep my eyes and thoughts looking forward.
One is by Eleanor Roosevelt. She was a remarkable lady. She had some very hard things in her life but she overcame them. She kept on going and found her calling.
I am not sure who the other quote is by. It is one that helped me to get my gumption back.
"You must do what you think you cannot do." Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt
"You are still young and useful at any age if you are still planning for tomorrow." unknown
I hope these quotes help you as much as they have me.

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: "What are you doing for others?" Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
What are we doing for others? There is something each of us can do. It may not be what others can do. It may not seem as big or important. But there is someone out there that needs some little something that will make their day and keep them going. Some small thing that you can do.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23
If you want the new year to be peaceful and more pleasant practice these things. It is not easy. But pick one of the fruits to work on. Starting with love might make it easier.
I heard a rabbi talking about how God listed each fruit in a certain position in this passage. Love comes first. Then joy. He says that God lists things in a certain order for a reason.
Have a great day!

"You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win."
I thought this was a good quote for the beginning of a new year. We must plan and then put elbow grease to our plan to make it work.

This quote was in the dollar stretcher newsletter. I thought it was very true and well said.
Don't let life get you down. Look for something beautiful around you and you will find it.
