Jenni over at Story of my Life blog is running a blogging challenge called Blog Every Day in May. I was going to participate but I knew that with everything I have going on at the moment I just wouldn't be able to do it. But I did think that the prompts Jenni has given for the month would be good to take inspiration for throughout the month.
So today I'm using the prompt from Day 4 -
Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it
The post in the picture above is probably one of my all time favourites. I've mentioned before my love of quotes. I've collected them in a notebook since high school. But the quote above is not written in my notebook and never will be. Ill never forget it, it's burned in my mind.
I don't know where it comes from or who said it. All I know is who said it to me.
My Grandmother. Not long before she died.
I've written before about my Grandma and how much I love her and look up to her, despite the fact she has been gone from this world since 2001.
What I love about this quote is that it sums up my Grandma's attitude to life so perfectly. She dedicated her life to Jesus and serving others and even when she was at her sickest she was still looking for ways to help, encourage and lift others up.
So tell me, what's your favourite quote? Do you remember who you first heard it from or where you saw it? I'd love to know.
Blogging as always with Essentially Jess, because its Tuesday and I Blog on Tuesdays! Do you?

I have so many great quotes I love, and now that I'm trying, I can not think of a single one!!!
Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He’s going to be up all night anyway - Mary C. Crowley
If you think you're too small to have an impact try going to bed with a mosquito in the room - Anita Roddick
The thought that I must, that I ought to write, never leaves me for an instant - Chekhov
My favourite quote these days is this: Moderation is best. It seems to be applying to lots of areas of my life of late.
It comes from a Greek philiosopher and I also wrote about the quote recently as well.
We must be riding the same wave. X
I am head over heels in love with Ernest Hemmingway at the moment and am thinking of starting to share some of his quotes on my FB....so maybe something from Hemmingway?
Grandmothers are the BEST! I am so glad that my girls will get to have both of their grandmothers around, hopefully for a long time!
One of my favourite quotes is: "Always plant a tree wherever you go because you never know when you'll need that shade" Forgot who first told it to me...but it's stuck in my brain.
