A Day For Quotes ~Touch Another Life With Love

"Christmas happens everywhere every time someone reaches out to touch another life with love." ~ Carol Duerksen

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist. ~ Francis P. Church


What is the beginning? Love. What is the course. Love still. What the goal. The goal is love. ~ Christina Rossetti

Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love. ~Leo Buscaglia

Love is life. All, everything that I understand I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source. ~ Leo Tolstoy


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails ... And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. ~1 Corinthians 13:4–8a, 13

Oh That’s Right, I Have a Blog

Waves “hi”.

Pardon my absence, things have been a little crazy around here! Between getting ready for Christmas, trying to work things out about who goes to who's house on Christmas and one of the worst workloads at my job ever I just haven’t had the chance to be here.

I know I am not telling you all anything you haven’t experiences yourselves. I have seen many posts this week on how behind or overwhelmed everyone is!

I finally scored 4 days in a row off, and am going to make somewhat of an attempt to get caught up! Beginning with my favorite picture of the week!!

I plan to be around tomorrow as well, but just in case I am not I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday from the Day With Two family. May your holiday be as wonderful as you all have been to me!

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree. ~Roy L. Smith

A Day For Quotes ~45 Lessons in Life

A friend of mine sent me this in an email this week. How he knew I needed to remember a few of these this week I will never know. The list was too good not to share it with you all.

Happy Sunday my friends, I hope your holiday shopping is done and you can enjoy your week!

  • Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
  • When in doubt, just take the next small step

  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

  • Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

  • Pay off your credit cards every month.

  • You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

  • Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

A Day For Quotes ~Funny Christmas

I plan on posting some serious Christmas quotes as we get closer to the holiday, but thought you might enjoy some funny ones I found today.  Hope you find one that makes you smile!


Christmas is a race to see which gives out first... your money or your feet. 




You can tell a lot about a man by the way he handles three things... a rainy day, an ill loved one and tangled Christmas tree lights.


May you hear those three little words at Christmas: No Assembly Required!





Decorate your homes with lots of mistletoe... this won't really help the environment... But more kissing has got to be good for world peace.

My Little Diva

Sorry i haven’t been here the last few weeks.  Someone rocked my work world again and I just had to take some time to regroup.   Nothing to bad on my end, except more workload because my boss needed to take some time off (read 3 months!) so he could regroup.  Sigh….


Jumping back in with an easy one….my sweet Angel and her mini fashion show:
