Real optimism is aware of problems but recognizes solutions; knows about difficulties but believes they can be overcome; sees the negatives, but accentuates the positive; is exposed to the worst but expects the best; has reason to complain, but chooses to smile.
-William Arthur Ward
I ran across this yesterday as I was organizing my quilting-craft room. Boy is it ever speaking to me. As I am going through this season of difficulties I will put this on my frig to remind me to be optimistic. This winter will be over soon and all will be working again.
