Day 12- What is your favorite quote
“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.” – Max Ehrmann
Thats an easy one. I mean, I love love love many other ones but this one just called to me. Funny story about how I found this. My mom used to arrange and organizers volunteers for the Elderly. I also used to help out and this came to an abrupt halt when one particularly cocky fellow decided that putting his hand on my leg during a movie was a smart idea. Men never change! Anyways, they weren’t all like that! Most were very sweet and very very happy to have help and someone to talk to.
One particular old man with probably the biggest set of ears I had EVER seen in my whole life was moving or something or another. So we went to check in on him or help him. I can’t remember it was back in the good years (19 years old…etc.) My mom did her usual chit-chat and I was fixated on the things around his place. I was always searching for antiques that were interesting to me. I came across a hand-stitched saying in a frame and I fell in love. I read it over and over again to memorize every word. In that moment I was thankful I was in plays/on stage. Having to memorize a bunch of lines comes in handy when you need it!
So, that’s how I found the quote but it spoke to me. At that particular time in my life I was uncertain and in the process of finding myself or rather I like to say creating myself and the simple idea that fate would take it’s course whether I knew it or not. I needed to just let the cookie crumble or let the puzzle pieces fit together. That everything would work out in the end. With that, this became my favorite quote. I live by this!
IN OTHER NEWS:
I bought my first drindl today!! WOO HOO!!! Take a look at it! 🙂 Normally these can be several hundred Euros…then there are the cheaper ones that are in stores at 100 Euros and most aren’t very nice but I found this one at 60 Euros!! I almost fell over. Tobi got a matching shirt for his lederhosen and I’m SO excited to go to Oktoberfest at the end of September!! It’s going to be awesome – and I will drink my face off. That is happening. Yes.
Our Garden is flying right along and approximately in 3 days, I will be sitting in the bubbly warm water of my jacuzzi with a drink in hand. I don’t care if I dehydrate. I’ve been waiting for this for YEARS! Can you believe we bought this jacuzzi 2 years ago? It’s time to unveil the beast! As far as the rest of the yard, I can’t wait to show you the finished project, it’s going to be beautiful. Soon we will buy furniture and the largest fence ever made…or hedges. I can not look at those stupid neighbors anymore. They make me want to puke. So, the stones arrived for the deck, the walkways in the back of the house and for the driveway! Check this out….and this isn’t even all of it. More pallets of stones arrived after I took this picture! We have taken over our neighbors yards…several of them. 🙂 Oops!!
Until next time, Readers!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
