I am excited to introduce “Wednesday Wanderings…” Every Wednesday I will post a favorite quote of mine along with a brief explanation of why I find it so meaningful! My hope is that the weekly quote will instill some hope and joy as we journey through the week. I will also add a statistic to the end of the post just to provide insight into what is occurring in the world around us. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Here goes…
“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a 100 minus one day so I never have to live without you.” A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
This is probably my favorite quote! I feel that very way regarding my loved ones and friends. I can’t imagine living life without the company of some amazing people! You know who you are! I feel so thankful for each of you! Thank you for being a part of my story! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
