Thoughtful Thursday- Helen Keller

I am starting a new weekly post featuring quotes. I love quotes. I love words. I guess that offers some explanation as to why I have a degree in Speech Pathology. is the first of some of my favorite quotes.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

- Helen Keller

What a lovely thought!
Add this one to your collection as well:
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.

Robin- That is a great quote. Thank you for sharing that one with me. I will add it to my collection.

Tina- Hello fellow Speech Path. I worked in a couple of parishes before I retired to stay home with the kids.

Elegant Hobbies- When I saw this quote, it really struck a cord for me. When I am feeling down about something, I try to remember those words.
