Return To Me-Wisdom from Carroll O'Connor

Cover of "Return to Me"Cover of Return to Me
I have always been a fan of sayings and quotes. Many of my favorites are from famous people. But often when watching a movie I find a line that rings true with me. The following quote is from the movie Return to Me:
        "It's the character that's the strongest that God gives the most challenges to".

If you haven't seen this movie I highly recommend it. Yes it is a chick flick but it's a good one and the old timers in it are highly enjoyable. The above quote is from Carroll Connor's character. Who knew Archie Bunker could be so profound. LOL

This quote helped me through many a dark moment after Ben died. Oddly it gave me strength when I needed it most. I repeated it to myself more times than I care to remember. And I was able to make it through the day knowing God was challenging me but he knew I could take it. I still repeat it daily and share it when I can.

Is there something you say or do daily that helps you make it through the day? Do you have a favorite quote or saying that you have above your desk or on your refrigerator? Post your favorite thought or action in the comments and maybe together we can help someone make it through their day.

Peace to all,

  1. If you always do, what you always did,
    you will always get, what you always got.

    This means to me to always try and look at things differently. Try and make better (different?) decisions. Try and see things from some one else's point of view. Life should never be taken for granted. Each day should be looked at as special. Don't just drift because it's easy and comfortable. Do something different and see how interesting that can be. It doesn't have to be something big, it just has to be some thing new. Linda Harrity

  2. Linda I love it. I recently had a video meeting where the speaker spoke about raising your standards. If you don't raise your standards than everything stays the same. Your quote reminds me of that. And I love that it doesn't have to be something big just something new. A great way to keep life intersting. Thanks for sharing. Peace---Annette

  3. In my mourning I am glad that I happened to come across this quote from Dr Suess:

    "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."

    These words have helped me to remember the good that needs to be cherished and celebrated and not just getting lost into the darkness of my loss.

    I hope they can be of help to you too.

  4. Orianne thank you for sharing. I love your quote. You just have to love Dr. Suess. Wisdom from a man that has made so many children smile.

    Remembering our loved ones helps us make it through losing them.

    Take care and God Bless.
