Quotes 81-85 for Quote quilt


Only 11 more quotes to go and they are all finished!! How is that possible?


116“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye”

I think we can all remember defining moments in our lives where we realized that the most important things have to do with love. All of the things that we let distract us from the core of who we are. Our eyes lie to us …so if we focus on our heart…..we will make better choices.



I asked my brother for some quotes. He is gay in case some of you don’t know. this quote might seem odd to someone who doesn’t know that. This is a quote by Cher. It’s also appropriate for my brother to quote. We grew up with a mom who had “any man is better than no man syndrome” and she hated men ..but had to rely on a man because of choices in her life. So it’s appropriate for my brother and I to know this and not rely on any man. I am educated and I don’t “need” Rob to survive. I find comfort in that. However, Rob needs me to survive. LOL Just kidding. ( kind of)



“The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. the struggles within yourself- the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us- that’s where it’s at.___”

This is so true for me. From conquering my childhood, conquering my weight issues, dealing with teens…there isn’t any person on earth who hasn’t been through struggles and we all know that it’s the battles without ourselves….once we get that processed and sorted out we can do anything.



“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s eyes”

I try to be a blessing to others when I can….


112“Just because you took longer than others, doesn’t mean you failed. Remember that”

I have to keep this in mind all of the time. My thinking is so black and white. I am either a winner or a loser…I either win or a fail and I put unrealistic expectations on myself. So I have to constantly remind myself that life is not a race….it’s not about winning or losing. It’s about love and the journey.

Well this concludes this weeks quotes….It’s just amazing that this quilt could be finished sometimes soon? LOL we shall see.
