Quote of the Week

Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
- Dr. Seuss



Imagine your favorite vacation, a special meal, or perhaps your childhood. Now imagine not having that experience, not feeling how it made you feel. Knowing what you know, you can smile because it happened rather than mourn its passing.

  1. Dr. Suess was a very wise man. So true, Linda - that's the beauty of memories. We can revisit those times and appreciate how special they were.

  2. Well done, Linda, with this quote.

    Oh, have I ever been guilty of the mourning part, rather than appreciating the special times:~(

    This is a good reminder to smile more often about the wonderful things that DO happen.

  6. I think it's also true of "the one that got away". It is better to have loved and lost too!

  7. Talon- Memories are the best of treasures.

    Sara- I think we all do that sometimes when we're missing something or someone.

    meleah rebeccah- Like Talon said, he was a wise man - we should all remember it!

    Kathe W.- Thanks!

    Linda- It is, and you know I thought about adding that, but maybe not all past relationships would make us smile.
