Monday Morning Inspiration - Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but do not quit.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.

Author Unknown

Oh, but sometimes it is so tempting.

Enjoy the nicer weather and have a great week,

In the President's Office

I always enjoy the part of the library where they set up the oval office. From what I understand, Truman like to have his picture taken in front of the globe by the fireplace.

Hey, can I say I've been in the president's office?

Here is a picture of his desk.

Wow, what a wonderful place to work, but I'm glad I don't have to make the decisions he had to make.

Away from Home

Last week, my husband and I visited Truman's library near Kansas City.

We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the small little town near the library.

Puzzling Question

Why do internet sites promote low calorie recipes, but when you get to the recipe, they don't list the number of calories?

A puzzle, I'm at a lost to understand.

Oh well, guess I'll just have to come up with something new to fix by myself.

Have a great week.

Monday Morning Inspiration

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."
