Some more of my favorite quotes

"Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death." ~Anaïs Nin

"Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you—they're supposed to help you discover who you are." ~Bernice Johnson Reagon
( I really like that second one. I've been through some things that almost paralyzed me. It's a choice you have to make to move. You can't let challenges stop you from living. These life lessons build character and make us who we are. Are we going to just sit and let life pass us by or face it head on and be a better person by getting through it. - Susan Richards)

"While it may take two to tango, it only takes you to commit to creating a relationship with the people in your life. Take full responsibility for your relationships and consciously choose to suspend judgment of people." ~ Al Ritter

"When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier." ~Roy Disney
"Values are most alive when we have specific words to describe them, and when we remain intentionally connected to them. It sounds so simple, but in reality, few of us make a practice of routinely making this connection." ~John G. Blumberg
"Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without coming away better and happier." ~Mother Teresa

Favorite Quotes on Courage

Courage does not always roar.
Sometimes courage is that quiet voice at the end of the day saying...
"I will try again tomorrow." ~ Mary Anne Radmacher
"When we think about courage, it's usually stories of heroism that come to mind – saving someone from a fire or climbing Mount Everest. But for millions of women around the world, courage comes in a very different way. It's a quiet voice that gives them the strength to go on for another day, sometimes in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds." ~ Bobi Seredich

A gravestone at Aumsville Cemetary

I just had to post this. This was the second oldest person in the Aumsville Cemetary. He was born in 1792. His wife was born in 1790. On the bottom it said that he was a soldier in the war of 1812!!! Just think about that for a minute. The war of 1812, was the last battle that freed the US from British rule. Lewis & Clark had just taken their expedition 6 years previously, from 1804 - 1806. A US census taken by the British in 1790, was 100,000 not including Native Americans. The only states in the US in 1790 were Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massechusettes, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Deleware, Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, North & South Carolina, Georgia, and (spanish) Florida. Anything West of the Mississippi was called Louisiana owned by the Spanish as well. There was Northern territory around the great lakes, and southern territory which I beleive was later called Tennessee.
Anyway, times were very different. This man and his wife, no doubt, came across the Oregon trail in covered wagon and settled here.
My husband and I were in awe at the history here.

Lincoln City

Road's End in Lincoln City. Pacific city was a little cloudy, but the farther South we went, the nicer it got. Although, the wind also got stronger too. After we reached Newport, the wind was blowing so hard and with the temp only 56 even witht he sun out, we decided to head inland. It was beautiful drive. Took King Valley Hwy home.
