My family has always been the most important thing in my life and I was blessed with having my children at a young age, so I can now enjoy the benefits of being surrounded by my wonderful grandchildren. As the years pass, I appreciate more and more the simple things in life, there is so much you can learn from just watching the young ones as they explore their world and 'live in the moment.'
Since the early 90's I have been interested in collecting together positive, spiritual quotes and verse. It all began when an uncle died and at the funeral two verses were handed around - 'Death Is Nothing At All' and 'I Am Standing On The Sea Shore' - I found them so inspiring that I wanted to find more.
Over the years I put together many hand written books that I called my 'Inspirational Books.' My search for positive thinking quotes also led me to start reading other spiritual books. Some of my favourites are: Conversations With God series by Neale Donald Walsch, Ask And It Is Given and other books by Esther and Jerry Hick and Opening Doors Within by Eileen Caddy.
I used to be amazed at how I would 'find' certain books or read something and wonder how to find out more about it, and then something would happen to bring the answer to me. I now know that this was achieved through the Law of Attraction.
In 2010 I came across Site Build It and after a few months of researching I decided to go for it and create a website. As in the Law of Attraction, they also teach that you should work on something that you love to do, so my choice of website was easy... positive quotes & verse. Since then I have spent a vast number of hours working on this website, but I have always enjoyed doing it, so the time spent is irrelevant. I'm also amazed at how much I have learnt.
I have always enjoyed taking pictures of my children and grandchildren but because of starting this website I wanted to use more photographs for quotes and so I began to take nature photographs. Over a period of time I began to 'see' differently and my love of nature has developed, I now spend a lot more time outside walking, gardening and taking photos.
I place the quotes from this site onto the photographs that I take and add them to my Spiritual Quotes To Live By page on Facebook, as well as including a selection on the pages throughout this site.
I have three brothers, so I grew up hoping there would be more females in my family, I was blessed with two daughters and one son which was perfect to me. When the grandchildren started arriving for a few years the girls were outnumbering the one boy, but the last four additions have leveled it out! Girls or boys though, they are all unique and are a constant source of love, boundless spirit and energy and are always giving me those special little moments of connection to treasure forever.
