A thought for Wednesday...

"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.... it's about learning how to dance in the rain!"

Those who know me well know that I LOVE quotes. I find they lift the spirit and bring back to focus what is most important in life when sometimes our fast pace can cause us to loose sight. One of my favorite quotes is from Chuck Swindoll. I wanted to share it will all of you. Hope you will be blessed as I have.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
