Quotes

I love quotes. I remember my mom had a Reader's Digest subscription for many years when I was growing up and two things in there always attracted me: Word Power and Quotable Quotes. I used to tear those out of every issue. I don't even remember if I waited until everyone was finished reading them. Somewhere in one of the bazillion boxes of old memories, there is a stack of Quotable Quotes stapled together. I'll find it again one of these days. Meanwhile, I go to different quote sites and find interesting ones.

Like:
"I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today." ~ William Allen White

How can so much be said in so few words?

"When you have come to the edge of all the light you have
And step into the darkness of the unknown
Believe that one of the two will happen to you
Either you'll find something solid to stand on
Or you'll be taught how to fly!" ~ Richard Bach

'nuff said.

What quotes do you like?

Ok... I give

It's not often I give in to peer pressure, but dang it! So many of my friends blog, I decided "What the heck!" and here I am. (Happy now, Christie?)

First decision.... what do I call my blog? That came rather quickly, because since William was born, I have discovered that *I* am 'Unlimited'. Since having kids in general, I have discovered I have an unlimited supply of love, joy, tears, happiness. With William, I have learned a depth of patience I didn't know was possible. All things are possible.

This past year, with the volunteer opportunities offered by Signing Time!, I have expanded my comfort zone in ways I didn't realize was possible. I've worked through my anxieties, taken on new challenges and yes, realized that my future is 'unlimited' (suddenly 'Defying Gravity' plays in my head). I've talked to complete strangers, shared stories of William, and worn 2 different costume versions of Hopkins the frog.

Stay tuned, for my life is never dull, often an adventure and way cooler than I ever dreamed possible. And I dream big!
