Words for Wednesday

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. John Ruskin

The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do. Galileo

It is not how much one makes but to what purpose one spends. John Ruskin

(I needed these words this morning-hope you enjoy them)

I like those quotes, especially the first one! Different kinds of good weather is a good way to think about it!

Hi Becca,,,, I do love all of the seasons and all kinds of weather.. BUT--I don't like having a freeze in Spring --that kills lots of our spring flowers. Grrrrr!!! Luckily this year, I don't think we had any damage... yeah rah!!!!

Hope things are good in Alabama!
Hugs,
Betsy

I love the quotes...glad to find your blog and will be back to read more. Hope you will stop by my blog. I am a new blogger. This is my second month in the world of BLOG. I am great give away this month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party Give Away,(over 300) that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you mention blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...Just be sure and let me know that you did. How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally... I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members. In May, there will be some fun blogs coming from Disney World with the grandkids. I hope to blog every night, in case you like a good trip report. And there will also be a great Disney giveaway.
I am so thankful for all my new friends.
