My Sister Ritu http://butismileanyway.com has an open invitation prompt for the month of February with the theme being Love.

Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead

Walk beside me… just be my friend

Thoughtful Thursday: Outlook

“It is not a person or situation that affects your life; it is the meaning you give to that person or situation, which influences your emotions and actions. Your choice is to change the meaning you gave it or to change your response, in order to create the outcome you want.”
― Shannon L. Alder

Thoughtful Thursday: Interpretation

“All knowledge that is about human society, and not about the natural world, is historical knowledge, and therefore rests upon judgment and interpretation. This is not to say that facts or data are nonexistent, but that facts get their importance from what is made of them in interpretation… for interpretations depend very much on who the interpreter is, who he or she is addressing, what his or her purpose is, at what historical moment the interpretation takes place.”
Edward W. Said

Thoughtful Thursday: Commitment

“If we commit ourselves to one person for life, this is not, as many people think, a rejection of freedom; rather, it demands the courage to move into all the risks of freedom, and the risk of love which is permanent; into that love which is not possession but participation.”
Madeleine L’Engle
