The Power Of Perseverance

I am blessed with the best when it comes to friends; Quiltkeemosabe sent this to me and I am passing it on to you. You know all about the power of perseverance, that "ant and the rubber tree plant" mentality that is the key to success in life. Watch this short movie; you won't be disappointed, I promise. In fact, this may just be the best two minutes you spend today. I had the opportunity to hear Alex Anderson give a lecture. She told her life story through her quilts. She challenged her audience to step up to the plate in whatever it is they want to accomplish, she explained how she was reticent to accept the offer to host "Simply Quilts", but then she realized how sad it would be to look back on her life one day and see all the opportunities that she had missed. I understand that logic; I don't want to look back with regret either! There is something that I really want to do; I have decided to keep at it until it occurs. What's the worst thing that can happen, I get tired from trying? I can live with that. And so, for me, I will persevere. Wish me luck, and enjoy the film clip!

Many of life's failures are men who did not realize how close

they were to success when they gave up.~Thomas Edison

Absolutely lovely. It was the only way I survived January, February and half of March. Now, I'm taking the pearls I finally realized I'd been collecting all along and making my strands. No wonder women have strand marks under their necks...I finally get it ;) I am so deeply grateful that I gave up perfection a very long time ago, showing up is what it's all about!
