WoW Friday: Jeffery R Holland

Good morning! And if you’re returning after a day off yesterday, good morning and welcome back. I’m so happy you’re here!

Fridays have always been a fun day around here (even if there aren’t any cute boys on tv) but I have to tell you, ever since we’ve started celebrating Words of Wisdom Fridays together, I’ve been looking forward to them even more.

This is our sixth WoW week, and I haven’t had to go searching for a quote yet. Every week, a collection of words has just …

If there's room for flying telephone booths, there's room out there for a lot of words, too.

If there’s room for flying telephone booths, there’s room out there for a lot of words, too.

appeared … in my inbox, on my facebook page, or on a blog, that seems to perfectly sum up what we’ve talked about during the week.

You guys, it’s like the universe wants us to have WoW Fridays !!!

Ok. So maybe it’s actually like I spend way too much time on the internet, but that’s not the point.

The point, my friends,  is that I found the perfect quote for us this week, courtesy of Vanessa at My Pen, My Voice. It’s been a fun, short week for a lot of us, with holidays on both sides of the border, but the truth is there’s a lot of big, hard stuff happening outside of our little corner of the internet, like Canadian cities still recovering from massive flood damage and loss and American cities still recovering from massive fire damage and loss, and the entire world bracing itself for the loss of one of its leaders.

And, you know, sometimes cute boys on tv can only do so much.

That’s why I was so happy to come across these words on Vanessa’s blog recently, and why I think they’re so important to remember.

Take care of yourselves, and each other, my Wonderfuls, and enjoy your weekends! Oh, and in case I haven’t mentioned it lately, I love you all to bits.

love amb

  1. “your words are like apiece of butter melting on the inside of a hot biscuit”–mandasiefert39 has a way with words herself! Huge–and well-deserved–compliment to you 🙂

    Great quote–I think sometimes of all the tough stuff going on and am grateful for all the small bits of good in the world. And hearing that it’s about pushing through as others before us have is very empowering.

    Am glad to have started my Friday with your (and Vanessa’s and Amanda’s) words. Happy weekend to you. Will be home later today and hope to get back to that “regularly scheduled programming” sooner rather than later 😉

    • Wasn’t that lovely? I’m so lucky to have such kind commenters (present company included, of course! 🙂 )

      I totally agree with you that it’s empowering to think of other people who have persevered through tough times. If they can do it, so can we!

      Am glad to have started my Friday with a visit from you 🙂 Hope the trip was a blast! How did the 5k go?

    • Anytime 😀 Thanks for visiting, even though I keep saying I’ll email you and haven’t yet *facepalm*. We’ll talk soon, I swear I’ll get my act together one of these days!!! xooox

    • I agree – nothing was ever made worse by positive thinking, right?

      I’m glad you found it too Michael – love having you here!

  2. The quote is a true jewel of wisdom! Things don’t get easier if you’re training, it does get harder, and it does take more effort to hit another milestone!

  3. Love the hot biscuit reference, what a great compliment.

    And the quote makes me think of “Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.” I’m not sure of the source on that one.

    Thanks for the smile.

  4. Amb I love this quote, I’m going to print it out and stick it up where all my family can see it. Sometimes it’s all to easy to feel alone. Thank you for sharing, have a great weekend xx

    • Oh I’m so glad Jenn! I’ve been thinking of printing this one out myself, to remind me to reach out and connect with other people when I need a little boost 🙂 I hope you have a great weekend too – it’s hot and steamy here, so I’m just going to try and stay cool!
