Just a Quote for Friday

{Happy 92nd birthday to my sweet grandma today!}

"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents,
the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people
who love you. When you learn to tap this source, you will
truly have defeated age."

~ Sophia Loren

Such a bittersweet photo for me. My grandma's birthday, my teal band, happy cupcakes, my mom lying on the lounge in the background, family all around...

Such a fantastic photo - I can definitely see how it would produce so many differing emotions.

leave the bitter and take the sweet. yes, your mom is in a difficult place, but thankfully, she is there with you and part of the celebration. I know you appreciate that, and I know it doesn't make it easier. But spend these wonderful days together and love one another.

I think the overriding thing I see in this photo is LOVE. The rest is transient. Great quote - loving the idea that creativity is the fountain of youth!
