I help organise a new group for our Patchwork Group that meets at night. I am in the process of writing our first newsletter and I wanted some profiles for it so I did a quick one for me and asked a few others to contribute as well as a way for the day group to get to know the new night time members.

One of the things I asked was for everyone to write down their personal motto.

This morning I got the profile back from my fellow organiser someone I have known for about 12 months, someone whom I have come to admire and respect enormously - and someone I have told you about before - remember my buddy from the craft fair??? Her personal motto (which I would love to share with you but I must ask her permission first) just stopped me in my tracks, it was so simple, so profound and so completely "right".

There are times when we read words that just fit with our soul and these words fit.

I came away feeling what I had written was a tad flippant, perhaps shallow but it is how I live my life it is how I feel about lots of things

Mine is : Life is too short for instant coffee

which of course has everything and nothing to do with coffee.

you know where this is leading don't you? It s Friday challenge time.........................

Hi DaisyMum

A few mantras I live by...

Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.

Life's too short to drink bad wine!

Shit happens!

Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you may get hit by a bus!

Live well, laugh often, love much!

Cheers - Joolz ;)
