Someone sent me a message about one of my quotes in my signature, and I thought I'd share what I told her about it. Here's the quote: "Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." It's so strange how I came about that quote. It was early spring, and we had just moved to a new town the October before. Our house is way out in the country on a "gravel" road. (I put that in quotes, because there is very little gravel on the road!) Anyway, I was feeling very depressed-----it's isolating out here at times, and I get that way if it's gray out for too long, but I think my hubby and I had had a quarrel on top of that, and paradise wasn't so great at the time. I decided to take the dogs for a walk down our road, and saw something white in the ditch up ahead. I got to where the white thing was, a pulled it out of the mud and weeds----it was a very large coffee cup with that peace quote on it! It completely changed my attitude that day, and whenever I'm feeling down, I think of that quote, or get that mug out and pour myself a big cup of coffee. I wish I knew who had tossed that cup from their vehicle, so I could thank them------god really does have a hand in our daily lives! By at the way, that quote is even helping today. Our water went out last-----we have well water, and hubby thinks the pipe in the ground rubbed against some wires, made the wires bare, and that's what's flipping the breaker switch off----so this morning, I had to bring tons of snow inside to melt and heat on the stove so I can water my animals. I'm lucky, though, as hubby knows how to fix the problem.
