Thought for the day

Tom sent me this, from an email newsletter that goes out to firefighters in Montana:

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly…….
Leave the rest to God
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass,
It’s about learning to dance in the rain.

  1. I’ve seen the last two lines quoted on some Amish or Pennsylvania Dutch crafts lately. I think it’s very moving. Thanks for sharing the quotes.

  2. I love the last two lines too!

    I think it’s a compilation of at least two quotes; the author of the newsletter is Butch Weeden, but I don’t think the quotes are his. I’ll keep checking; I’d love to know the sources, myself.
