Love these Gail Boenning Unfortunately my wifi is down so having problems loading pics — and responding it seems- sorry for the delay in responding!

Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today. The magnet credits this as a Cherokee saying..

The expression of love, no matter how it is received, is never wasted. (I have a feeling that might be one of my own, but can’t remember!)

Those that are hardest to love, need it the most — Socrates

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Mariane Williamson

Do not let the behaviour of others, destroy your inner peace — Dalai Lama. (this one I have to whisper to myself quite a bit!)

As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.”

Nelson Mandela

Courageous people do not fear forgiving for the sake of peace — Nelson Mandela

Forgiveness liberates the soul, it removes fear. That is why it is such a powerful weapon. — Nelson Mandela

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — 90th birthday celebration of Walter Sisulu, Walter Sisulu Hall, Johannesburg,18 May 2002
