A little of this, a little of that, a blessing here and there
"I thought I could change the world.
It took me a hundred years to figure out
I can't change the world.
I can only change Bessie.
And, honey, that ain't easy either."
-- Annie Elizabeth "Bessie" Delaney, at 104

What a wonderful quote. :-)
But who would want to change Bessie...:>) and by the way,...Tag--You're IT!!! (imagine the sound of footsteps running away...) I've tagged you for a meme over at my place to do IF and WHEN you have time, IF and WHEN you feel like it. Enjoy your day and thank you for your visits and comments over my way:>)
Boy, ain't that the truth. the only thing we can change is ourselves and we really want to have to do it.
simply put and so true! p.s.Thanks for the healing comment- I'm feeling much better today ;)
So, so true. And love the little bug in the picture.
Yes, that Bessie is a wise woman indeed.
All: I'm embarrassed to say that I did not know of Bessie till I found her quote and did a little research. She was amazing--and wise!DBSO-So now I'm obsessing--in a good way! Fun! Answers coming soon. Thanks!~ennui~: So glad to hear you're on the mendEllen: Yep, and I'm beginning to think I can't even do it myself. I dare my change have more to do with following guidance from The Great Unknowable than anything I attempt to do myself!
