I was thinking as I read this quote that the opposite might be true as well.  Then again, some people do come into our lives — and, as a society, into many millions of lives — who are either a blessing or a lesson.  Both strengthen us in different ways, but I prefer the creative types (like Elvis♥) who bless us a lot more than the evil mouth-breathers — and I’m not talking about Darth. He ultimately acted with honor and was redeemed.

Have a great weekend.

Please send good thoughts for our ♡ Johnny O. I haven’t heard from him in two weeks and I’m really worried.  He’s not picking up his phone or answering texts or email and hasn’t been seen as far as I know on Facebook since June 7th.  If anyone knows John, please have him call me.

Thank you.

Gems 376 Stephen King Shawshank Freedom

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs are too sweet and wild.  So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”  Stephen King, Rita Hayworth in the Shawshank Redemption

Journey Notes

Special thanks to JP for today’s quote.  The suggested theme for July is “freedom,”  but if you have a favorite quote about any other uplifting subject, please let us know.  We’re always accepting favorite quotes.
