    I agree, winning doesn’t mean you have to be first. You win when you think you can..

    Thanks 🙂

    This one gives me a warm fuzzy feeling…

    I’m thinking of the many times I thought I’d lost out on something and God used the experience (and the perceived loss) to give me so much more!

      Yes Ann
      I have proven that so many times
      and I thought that it would be easier
      to handle ‘big loss’
      but human as I am
      I can’t take it easily
      even on the thought that something bigger
      is SURE to come.
      Yes, SURE to come!
      Should I not be happy with that?
      Yay I am starting to talk to myself
      — again!
      Have a great day everyone!

    too true, so many times a loss is a win – it’s the gift, if we can only see it xx

    • bendedspoon Says:

      is it hard to see the gift
      beyond the loss due to tears
      or we feel undeserving of the gift
      thus won’t accept it?
      now you made me think
      thanks for that gift!

    Talk about a man who is (was) free from hate. Beautiful.

    It is always in failure that we learn more.

    Amazing quote, where do you find them?

    Take care Alan

      If we are willing to learn! 🙂

      Got them from quotable quotes or lifted from the books. The quote always have a connection to the post that goes with it. It could be the same thought or the opposite of it. It could be born from a word in the post or how I imagine it. Glad that you like it!
