Motivational Monday - October 10, 2011

I know I am getting this in a bit late (Monday is technically over on the east coast), but better late than never...
 
Today I am dedicating this Motivational Monday to a wonderful and beautiful woman, my mom!!!  She turns 87 years young today!!!
 

Isn't she lovely!
When I was in my early teens my mom brought me two small inspirational plaques to display in my room.  They weren't anything fancy, and I believe we got them at the local Woolworth's store (yes I am dating my self by mentioning Woolworth's), but these plaques were special because she brought them for me.  The saying on one of them has always stayed with me because of the quote on it.  The quote was an Eleanore Roosevelt quote, but it was written in Spanish; El futuro pertenece a aquellos que creen en la belleza de sus sueños".  At the time my Spanish was not very good, so mom translated it for me; translated it reads: "The Future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams".  It was her hope and aspiration that all of her children would reach for (and achieve) their dreams. 
I can't quite remember what the background picture looked like,
but I am going to improvise with this cloud picture for inspiration.

So today I share this quote with all of you, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams", I hope it will serve as inspiration to some, if not all; and I add to it, that I firmly believe that it is never too late in life to reach for your dreams.
