A Very Special Moment For Warm Heart Wednesday Week #20

Is it Warm Heart Wednesday week 20 already?

I've missed the last two weeks.  I haven't been online much and I apologize for not getting my weekly posts up and reading your blogs.  I'm back for week 20 and will try not to miss again!

Warm Heart Wednesday is where we share something that we found heart warming.  This weekly event is sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."

I saw this one on television and then looked for it online.  It was one of those moments that I found heartwarming and I hope you will too.  A deaf woman hears for the first time after receiving a cochlear implant.  Perhaps you've already seen it, but it's worth another look for that special warm hearted moment toward the end.  (That part starts approximately 1:35 minutes into the video if  you want to skip ahead.)
Now head to Ms. Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants.

I'm in a hurry this morning, but I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Easter and apologize for being absent for Warm Heart Wednesday and for not reading some of your blogs the last couple of weeks.  Things have been a little crazy around here.  I hope to be back this Wednesday.

I got busy working on a doll project too.  I made the pink bunny peeps and the little chocolate bunnies using molds and polymer clay.  They were the perfect size for my Ginny and Muffy dolls.  I couldn't resist giving it a try.

Gotta run...

Quotes for Warm Heart Wednesday #17

Welcome to Warm Heart Wednesday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."

I enjoy reading quotes by famous people and not so famous people.

Some quotes are heart warming, some quotes are inspirational, and some quotes just make you step back and think.

I thought I'd share a few quotes with you.

This has always been one of my favorites.  It appears on the base of the Statue Of Liberty.
"Give me your tired, your poor;
Your huddled masses yearning to be free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."  -  Emma Lazarus

A few more that make me stop and think...

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. ” -  Nelson Mandela

"Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” -   Martin Luther King, Jr.

“If you as parents cut corners, your children will too. If you lie, they will too. If you spend all your money on yourselves and tithe no portion of it for charities, colleges, churches, synagogues, and civic causes, your children won’t either. And if parents snicker at racial and gender jokes, another generation will pass on the poison adults still have not had the courage to snuff out.” -  Marian Wright Edelman

“If we wish to create a lasting peace we must begin with the children.” -  Mahatma Gandhi

A few quotes I'm going to try and remember during this political season...

“A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.” -  Nelson Mandela

“No matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as the truth.”  John F. Kennedy

"The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant;  have humor, but without folly."  Jim Rohn
