  11. There are two ways to live life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.-

I have to admit that #3 and 6 are my favorites today. 


  1. Gotta love the Dalai Lama - but to think he didn't know who Tiger Woods was????? It's not like he is one of those cloistered monks....

    BTW, laundry crisis today as I discovered my laundry ball had wound up in the dryer. It must have been stuck in the sheets. Have you had this happen before and did it affect future washes?? I'll need to be more careful next time!

  2. Great quotes... and fab picture to go with them :0)

  3. I love them all, especially #2 and #6. Great post!
