Wordy Wednesday

Hi and welcome to Wordy Wednesday.
Don't the weeks just fly by? It seems no time since last week's article and it's almost a week since the big day. I can hardly believe it's all done and dusted. :)

This week's topic is all about 'Life' and I've chosen some of my favourite quotes for this one. It seemed like a good time to be a little philosophical as we move from one season to the next, though one or two have a bit of humour in there to keep it light.

life: capacity for growth, functional activity, and continual change until death; living things and their activity; period during which life lasts; duration of thing's existence or ability to function; person's state of existence; living person' business and pleasures of the world; energy, liveliness; biography ~ Little Oxford dictionary

Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. ~Hans Christian Anderson

Thank you for joining me this week. I hope you have found some food for thought in this week's sayings. I love the Hans Christian Anderson quote. I think it says it all. :)

See you next time!
