Never quit!




I came across this uplifting poem that I posted a while back, and I love it so much, I'm publishing it again!


When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar.
So, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit.

—Unknown

Oh, so true! I've printed this and it is now tacked up on my inspiration board at work. And the image of the little ladies with their flowered bags - priceless!

So very true. And I just love all of the photos. The first ones remind me of an Elle editorial from the mid 80s. And Anna looks amazing as usual :)

Happy Thursday!
