Amazing Gratitude

I feel lucky when I find amazing quotations….

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way,

that some poems don’t rhyme,

and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end….

Life is about not knowing,

having to change,

taking the moment and making the best of it,

without knowing what’s going to happen next.

Delicious Ambiguity…”

                                                                                 Gilda Radner

It is very important to understand that life is change, constant change.  When you are young, permanence is important. As you age, you see the beauty in the change.  Without rain, wind, this beauty would have not been born.  We are also born and reborn through change.

Here is yet another wonderful quote to round out what Gilda Radner says.

“You gain strength,

courage,

and confidence

by each experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

                                                                    Eleanor Roosevelt

Both of these amazing women lived their lives to the fullest and did the things they thought they could not do.   I post them here to remind myself, to delight in their wisdom and to express gratitude for their words.
