Ida Scott

“Do not grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled over the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.”

“I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone…it’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel alone.”

“Legend of the Dreamcatcher

Native Americans of the Great Plains believe [that] the air is filled with both good and bad dreams.

According to legend, the good dreams pass through the center hole to the sleeping person. The bad dreams are trapped in the web, where they perish in the light of dawn.

Historically, dreamcatchers were hung in the tipi or lodge, and on a baby’s cradle board.”

[I'm a believer because they adorn every room of my home.]

( ~ Definition compliments of St. Joseph’s Indian School in Chamberlain, South Dakota.)

“Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body.”

Only you, George. could come up with such a “profound” thought. I miss you.

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul[s] when we look the other way.”

Amen…in my younger days, I inflicted these wounds on myself more than I care to admit. Thank God, now that I am older, I know better and no longer “look the other way.”

Words of Wisdom (aka: Just so you know…)

“It is my nature to be kind, gentle, and loving. But know this: When it comes to matters of protecting my friend[s], my family, and my heart, do [NOT] trifle with me [because] I am also the most powerful and relentless creature you will ever know.”

(Thanks for this one, Kay.)
