It’s day two, and I’m already off my schedule! But I wanted to share this inspiration with all of you today. This is my sweet friend Maghon Walker’s life motto, and I think it’s an amazing one! She is a talented calligrapher who sells her work at her very own store All She Wrote Notes. So when you see an inspirational quote on the site that you love, head over there and get it for your desk or your wall. I know that having inspirational things around me always helps me to stay focused, motivated and ready to face the day!
I love this motto because I think it really sums it up. Work Hard. Stay Sweet. Trust God. Love Deep. I have realized that the most wonderful things in my life have happened when I completely surrendered control. It is hard, hard, hard for a Type-A, only child like this girl. But, man, when I can do it, the things that happen are so much better than anything I could have imagined on my own!
This quote seems appropriate for this weekend, as well, because our troops are living this motto every, single day, working hard, trusting God and loving all of us enough to fight for us. They are such heroes, as are the families who sacrifice so they can do what they do!
This long holiday weekend I hope you all get to take a break from hard work to just really relax and rest. (And love deep!) I’ll be lounging on the beach with my manuscript, getting the final edits ready to turn in at the beginning of the week — so that all of you can be reading the real thing while you’re lounging on the beach Memorial Day weekend 2015! Wow, that’s an exciting thought!
Thanks for stopping by today, sweet friends!
Today is also the International Day to End Obstetric Fistula, a devastating childbirth injury that still affects mothers all over the world. My AMAZING and inspirational friend Allison is doing her part to eradicate fistula in Ethiopia. Read about her on Virgin United today!
