Hopeful Thought for the Day

Had a rough day yesterday, and while randomly Googling for something uplifting, I found this:



It's been one of my favorite sayings for more years than I can count, but this is the first time I've seen someone make a graphic out of it.

I'll be thinking about this one a lot.

  1. I had never heard that one. This is the one I like: “No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude, and humility. … It is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire.” Elder Orson F. Whitney

  2. By the way, hang in there.

    My yesterday was lousy, too.

    But my today has been kinda awesome :)

  3. Thanks.

    My today's gotten better. Got a really good night's sleep, got the writing for my freelance gig done already, AND when I went to the post office to drop my 20 pound package in the mail, not only was there NO ONE in line ahead of me (that's NEVER happened), but they also said it'll probably be there tomorrow.

    Now if I can just get this evening's snowstorm to miss my house...

  4. Oooooh. If you figure out how to do *that*, I wanna hear your secret.

    I think I've about beaten the pneumonia I've had for over a month. Just in time to shovel again. Geez. :P

  5. Ya know, at some point, I should make a deal with my neighbors that they can borrow my snowblower to do their driveway if they do my driveway, too.

  6. Wait. I thought you didn't like it when people made quotes into graphics involving different sized fonts...

    ReplyDelete
  7. I don't.

    But the quote is still awesome :-)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yep. :)

    How much snow are we supposed to get?

  9. Well, unreliable rumor says 1-3 inches.

    Boring, realistic answer: "however many inches are between the top & bottom of the pile of snow on your driveway."

    Which reminds me... I've never heard a reliable snowfall prediction, and I'm supposed to believe "scientists" claiming to predict the temperature in 100 years?...

  10. Well, I pushed 2" off the driveway at 4 pm and there's a whole lot more than an inch more out there now...

    I'm cold.

    I want a warm bath.

    If you ignore snow, it will go away, right? :P

  11. Yes.

    Winter is cold & snowy.

    But it always ends...

  12. Checked the original link. Was that a feminist blog?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yeah I think so.

    I only gave the link as a courtesy to the source. It in no way implies an endorsement of the blog in its entirety.

    I glanced around a little while I was there. I didn't see anything else of interest to me.

  14. Ah. I thought perhaps you were a closet feminist :P

    ReplyDelete
  15. Nope. I prefer my women in the kitchen, barefoot, wrapped in an apron, and baking me cookies.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Too bad. I've spent all morning in the driveway, in boots, wrapped in a parka, moving snow from one place to another. :P

  17. *grabs shovel*

    Get back in the kitchen, woman!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sure. NOW you steal my shovel. Now that I'm finished. Geeez. In turn, I promise to steal your cookie scoop as soon as you take the last batch out of the oven. Mmmmm. What kinda cookies are you baking me, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sorry, doll, not my fault you didn't complain about shoveling *before* you went out.

    I would've grabbed the shovel and cleared the snow myself (after shooing you into the kitchen).

    You need to work on your timing :-P

  20. Anyone ever tell you you're kinda cute when you're pouty?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Who me? *bats eyelashes innocently*
