June is such a beautiful month. Flowers are blooming, and the birds are chirping. You can just step outside and smell that freshly cut grass smell. I do love late spring. I think this year I am especially thankful to be able to enjoy those simple things because of the pandemic we have been dealing with over the past several months. So thankful that my family is healthy, and although we are adjusting like so many others to this new normal, we are still here to make those adjustments which is a daily blessing. I want to focus the June Thoughts to Inspire around our fathers, as we celebrate them this month.
Here are my top 10 picks for June:
A Father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way. –Unknown
A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society. –Billy Graham
When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.—William Shakespeare
A discerning man keeps wisdom in view, but a foot’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth. –Proverbs 17:24
The righteous man walks in his integrity, his children are blessed after him. –Proverbs 20:7
Look straight ahead and fix your eyes on what lies before you. –Proverbs 4:25
Every home is a university and the parents are the teachers. –Mahatma Gandhi
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes. –Mahatma Gandhi
What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead. –Nelson Mandela
Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take –Proverbs 3:6
I hope these quotes have inspired you to take a thoughtful look at your Father’s at this time, and that you will also check out some of this other inspirational content!
I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
