About Me

My photo
I'm a 45 year old mother of 3 boys. I live in a beautiful old house that needs a lot of TLC with my youngest son and 2 dogs. I am working hard at keeping myself healthy and fit by working out and doing a spot of running. I'm a creative person and am passionate about keeping traditional skills alive. I cook, knit, bake, garden, preserve, read, write and am now learning to spin and quilt. Oh and I sometimes swear.....

Wise Words

Over the last 4 weeks I've had a lot of support both publicly and privately.  Many people have sent me lovely messages just to let me know that they're thinking about me and offer some words of wisdom.  Some of these wise words appear on the right. When things get tough I think about these words.

Today I came across a quote by Dr Maya Angelou (if you've never heard of her take a look at http://www.mayaangelou.com/) She is a very wise lady.  This quote pretty much sums it up for me just now.

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Our words and actions have an impact on more people than we think.  In time those words and actions will be forgotten but the feelings they provoked will be remembered forever.
