The One That Started It All

“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.”

–Mahatma Gandhi

This is the one that started it all—the quote that begun My Wall. I had an 8 ft x 8 ft space that was full of cards people gave me, quotes I would print, and thoughtful things I collected. This was my laundry room—which has since been redone—and now there’s two great photos of Mark and I in its place. I made a smaller spot for all of these inspirational things on a bulletin board in my office. It’s still greatly loved, but not as dear to the heart as the laundry room which inspired a lot of people—not just me. I can’t believe I don’t have a picture of it.

The other quote that started the wall was:

“My strength is as the strength of ten, because My heart is pure.”

–Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Which brings us to now. It is beyond me how fortunate I am to have such a BEAUTIFUL webpage! I think it is incredibly special and organized and pretty. I am so happy and grateful to share it to hopefully help and inspire many people.

I remember when I was 16-year-old, I passed a Hallmark store and I said to my boyfriend—who is now my husband—that I thought one day I wanted to own one of these stores. I love quotes, sweet cards, and finding ways to tell people you love them, or that they are important or special. I’ve been known to send weekly cards to my boys while they were in college. I even made cards for my husband when we first met by cutting out letters from magazine or making collages. It was basically Pinterest back then—without the computer. I’ve been collecting and sharing inspirational sayings for a long, long time… these helpful inspirations and positive vibes which are now Jet Zengine on Gluten Free Sage.
