It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 11, Page 21, Book 15

As the leaves surely change,
With time, so do we;
We grow and we learn,
From the things that we see.

Everything makes a difference,
Whether subtle or grand;
The heart can grow stronger,
And the mind will expand.

It's true, we're affected
By everything that's been said;
Every movie we've watched,
And all the books that we've read.

Though just like the leaves,
No two are akin;
Each one is unique
Like every person within.

And just like the seasons,
We're all changing as well;
For our lives are each different,
As are the stories we tell.

November 21 -  love is patient

Flowers only bloom when they are ready. People are the same way. You cannot rush or force them open just because you think it’s time. Be patient.

Timber Hawkeye

Whenever you are facing a difficult time in your life, give yourself the gift of patience. Patience is the main ingredient necessary to get through difficult times.

It’s hard to be patient! But, without patience, you would have no hope.  Patience helps you grow. It nourishes both compassion and empathy. So, embrace patience. Ultimately this makes you a stronger

Living in hope, we remain optimistic about something.  We don’t give up but continue to believe that something good will come our way.

Hope is the feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent. 

Mignon McLaughlin,

Remember:  The desire, inspiration and motivation to stick with anything new comes from reminding yourself why you started in the first place.

Patience is truly hard to understand. But your final reminder has really helped me today!

Patience is something I've never achieved. While waiting for something, all I can seem to do is pray.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, dear one.

Good reminders! Patience is certainly not my strong suit.
Perhaps if I had a homey front porch like those shown in your pictures .... (lol)

I can be so patience about some things and so impatient about others. I've come a long way in learning patience but still have a long way to go :)
