pearls of wisdom...

Do you ever have days when you could use a little encouragement..?
I sure do.

Today was spent as many days around here are often search of inspiration. As I was downloading images for an upcoming shoot, this photo stood out.
Sometimes I need encouragement along with inspiration. I began reflecting on pearls of wisdom that have brought me strength. I wish I could remember all the words that have carried me through the years. I may not remember them all, but I wear a long strand comprised of many quotes, both infamous and anonymous, as well as kind words from those I love.

Here is one I would like to share...


The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand.

The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land.

The music stops, yet echoes on in sweet, soulful refrains.

For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.

I love pearls of wisdom.
Some are gentle and poetic and others are blunt and direct. I am so very grateful to have a long beautiful strand.
Always look for strength, encouragement and inspiration...
then be sure to pass it along.


  1. Oh- I love Pearls Of Wisdom, too. It is a wonderful, uplifting little book, isn't it? Blessings- xo Diana

    1. lately I have been very instead of hugs I turn to uplifting words of encouragement and inspiration! Thanks for the comment!

  2. Just remember, each pearl is born with a little bit of irritation.

    1. Most every pearl on my strand comes from you and Mom...and this is yet another! Love you Pops!!!

  3. I am quite often looking for inspiration and words of encouragement. Sometimes I'll read what someone else has said, or a quote and I'll feel it right in my soul...that "yes" that's exactly what I needed to can be serious or it can be funny...sometimes the funny ones work the best!

    1. I feel the same way! Isn't it so true that there is great power in words. That's why it is so important to always be mindful of the things we say. Your words mean a great deal to me and I want you to know how much I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Hugs, Melinda
