Here's my most recent favorite. :D

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

One of my favorite writing ones is:

"I spent all day writing: this morning I took out a comma and this afternoon I put it back in."
~Oscar Wilde

I don't know who penned it but I sure do refer to it a lot: "This too shall pass." It's kept me sane in some fairly insane moments.
In the twilight of my years, may His Light shine more brightly.

As a writer, this has special meaning for me:

I like that 3Pamela3!

If someone remembers just one of my poems or stories, I feel like I've done something special.

Mine is "There ain't no future in the past."

(a line in a song I once heard)

I'm from the South, ya'll!

Blessings....
God Bless the beasts and the children
Give them shelter from the storms.
Children are our tomorrow
Keep them daily from the sorrow
Of the beasts in life

I don't know why this one popped into my head. Maybe I'm being introspective?

I read a great line today. It was a comment on a blog article about how to diffuse and/or get through a time when someone else is bashing you (with words, not physically). The line went like this:

"You can talk about me all you please, but I will talk about you on my knees."

Theresa
