      In the 1960s my high school English teacher, Mrs. Engstrom, used to say, “Time and Tide wait for no man and only five minutes for women.” Isn’t it interesting what stays with us for 50-60 years?

    “When God closes one door, He opens another.” My grandmother used to tell me this all the time to help me through disappointments in my life. I’ve passed this on to my children and now to my grandgirls. It helps me to focus on something bigger than myself and my wants.

  9. Dionne Speer says:

    I’d love to win this. I’m trying to fill a focus wall in my dining room with various wall art. This would be a splendid addition. The other piece of artwork I plan to use has one of my favorite quotes: “There is always a reason to be Thankful.” There truly is.
