LOVE this quote

So, while surfing some of my favorite scrapbooking blogs, I came across the following quote on Ali Edwards blog. Honestly, if this quote does not hit home I do not know what is so true in regards to so many of the things that I feel so passionately about in my life. Sometimes a person does not know exactly how to express themselves, however this quote completely sums up the way I feel about alot of things and the choices I make and decisions I have made in regards to how I live and want to continue living my life by. Marilyn Thomsen : And while it takes courage to achieve greatness, it takes more courage to find fulfillment in being ordinary. For the joys that last have little relationship to achievement, to standing one step higher on the victory platform. What is the adventure in being ordinary? It is daring to love just for the pleasure of giving it away. It is venturing to give new life and to nurture it to maturity. It is working hard for the pure joy of being tired at the end of the day. It is caring and sharing and giving and loving… Thanks Ali!
