Where does the winding road of life lead? That is a question that I ask myself as I go along this weaving path of daily life. I think certainly it leads me, as well as, others to the final destination of our heavenly home; but it also allows us to see the beauty and magnificence of the world in which we live. That being said, I would like to share with you some thoughts. The next book I plan to write will be entitled, "What A Mother Says", as my son, Kevin,has so aptly named the book. It will be a book in the format of quotes from the heart of this mother. The birth of thought for this book came to me from my son, Kevin. He had said to me that all the little sayings I have quoted to him and his brother and others over the years would be great reading material for others, and so it goes the beginning of the book to come in the future.
May the quotes I am sharing here bless you as you go from day to day. These too will give you some idea of what I plan to share in my next book. I have written thousands of quotes that have come to me as I have traveled this winding road of life.
