footprints_in_the_snow_by_glitz0101-d35es6z I woke up this morning (3:46 am to be exact) thinking about footprints.  Footprints?  Yes, footprints.  If you walk across a snowy road or path, eventually those footprints that you leave behind are covered with snow or eventually cleared away.  If you walk across a beach, the footprints that you leave will soon be covered up by water or mud.  But the footprints you leave on someone’s life is never covered up.  They remain there for ever.  The quote,  “Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same” is one of my most favorite quotes.  These types of footprints are never washed away, covered up or cleared away.  These footprints stay with you or the person forever. 

I think that it would be amazing to open up someone’s heart (figuratively speaking, of course) and examine the millions and billions of footprints that make up that heart.  Are there lots of the footprints that leave sweet tenderness and kindness types of prints?  Or would you find deep footprints that contain sadness and despair that penetrate the soul just by observing them?

For the past hour, I have been examining my own heart and the zillions of footprints that cover the outside and the inside of my heart.  There are so many footprints that have touched my life for the good.  Each set of them I am so grateful for…for they have brought me an abundance amount of tenderness, kindness and happiness.  As I look closely to those footprints that have brought me true sadness and despair…am I grateful for them too?  After pondering this question, my answer is yes.  I am.  They make up me.  Michelle Lynn Gren. 

I hope and pray that the footprints that I leave are prints that bring tenderness, kindness and happiness.   I would never want to find out that I left behind true sadness and despair….those that cannot be repaired by a simple hug or a gentle “I am sorry” or a loving “I love you”.

My question to you (and you need not answer) is what type of footprints did you leave today? 

Just pondering,

This picture sits on my nightstand.  Nightstand?  Yes, when I wake up in the morning, it is a helpful reminder of my goals that I have set for the day.  As I go to bed, it is a reminder to ponder all that I accomplished throughout the day.  Do you set goals?  What helps you accomplish your goals? 

Happy Thursday!

It is quick quote Thursday!

I love quotes.  How many times have I said that?  I have said it here, here, and here!   I love quotes.  They stimulate my brain.  They make me want to be a better person.  They make me happy.  They make me sad.  They make me giggle. They make me cry.  They remind me to keep moving towards that ultimate goal.


Knowing that I absolutely love quotes, my dear friend Gabby sent me this quote.  It made me smile and giggle.  I am awesome!  Yes, sometimes I am sad and when I stop being sad, I become awesome again. 

Yes, this is a true story!

I love life!!!


P.S.  I would love to know what your favorite quote is today?

Look out adventure…I am ready for you!!

Aw…it is 2012.  I cannot believe it.  Last year seemed to pass by so quickly.  I experienced  some things that I NEVER want to experience again. On the other hand, I experienced some amazing and incredible adventures and wouldn’t mind building upon them to make them even greater than I remember them.  BUT…all in all, I am grateful for the love that I have for life.  Each day is a new adventure…some days might be brighter than others but they are still little adventures building into one incredible life. 

That life is…MINE!!!  about_slogan  My goals are set…look out adventure…I am ready for you!! 

Happy New Year!!
