It's the beginning of the week and the end of summer.
(Where has the year gone?)
For some, this marks a time when encouraging words can help to feel more energized and optimistic, to go the distance.
So whether you're dealing with a challenging job, a "full" plate, a broken heart, or simply need to be uplifted, the following quotes are designed to keep you encouraged and help you to experience a more positive, productive week ahead.
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."---Eleanor Roosevelt
"Love is like the measles; we all have to go through it."---Jerome K. Jerome
"Macho does not prove mucho."---Zsa Zsa Gabor
"The more you complain, the longer God makes you live."--- Anonymous
"Everyone must row with the oars he has."---English Proverb
"Age is not a handicap. Age is nothing but a number. It is how you use it."---Ethel Payne
"A woman is like a tea bag. It's only when she's in hot water that you realize how strong she is."---Nancy Reagan
"In youth we learn; in age we understand."---Marie Von Ebner
"Happiness is good health and a bad memory."---Ingrid Bergman
" Be still and know that I am God."---Psalms

"Grandma's hands clapped in church on Sunday morning.
Grandma's hands picked me up each time I fell."
In a tribute to his beloved granny, Bill Withers penned this popular song many moons ago. Yet, the lyrics are still relevant today and resonate for so many of us.
Can I get an amen?
Who can deny the special place grandparents hold in our hearts even as "grown folks," or forget the lasting imprint they have had on our lives and in our cherished memories?
It is for this reason, that we at Ina Mae Greene Foundation invite you to join us as we honor and recognize National Grandparents' Day.
Originally established in 1978, by a proclamation established by President Jimmy Carter, this special day each September, gives us an opportunity to say thanks for their contributions to our families, churches and communities.
If you are blessed to have yours still in the "land of the living" here are a few suggestions of activities and gestures to extend tomorrow.
- Make up a cute coupon that entitles them to "one free day of house cleaning or errand running" next week.
- Rent their favorite movie and watch it with them. Bring popcorn, candy, ice cream, or their favorite treat.
- Prepare a home-cooked meal.
- Treat them to a day at the Spa, or a professional massage.
- Call them on the phone and listen to what they've been up to. Convey your love.
- Send them a card and flowers.
- Attend a church service with them.
- Give them a few bucks to shop and browse at the local thrift store.
- Write them a personalized poem.
The possibilities are endless. Just like their love.
And if your grandparents are "on the other side" remember them in prayer and reflection.
Wishing you and yours a "grand" Grandparents' Day!
