Little pearls of wisdom

After two weeks away from home i finally got back last wednesday, the extended stay did have it's benefits got to do more things with sue my daughter i am usually flitting from place to place when i am up so we had some good quality time together. Good news on mum she is progressing well and should be home very shortly, so i think i may have to go up again to finalise her coming home, but on the whole a successful trip. Even got to go to the cinema we saw "Slum dog millionaire" really impressed well worth a watch.
Whilst being at sues i got to reading a little book that she had been given as a present it was a small book of tranquillity, calm and Patience some beautiful quotes and little thoughts so we will be having a thought or two of the day whenever i post thought this one was quite apt after the weather we have been having
How calm , how beautiful comes on the still hour when storms have gone, when warring winds have died away And clouds beneath the dancing ray melt off and leave the land and sea sleeping in bright tranquillity. THOMAS MOORE
If speaking is silver then listening is gold. TURKISH PROVERB
It is who is in your life that matters not what is in your life

Congrats on finally making it home J. :D It's great that you were able to spend more time with your daughter - I know how much that means!

Sounds a lovely book your friend was given. I really like and believe the Turkish proverb - it's definitely the people in our lives that made the difference IMHO!
