Take Time! Great words of wisdom to start the New Year!

I spent some time today cleaning out a cupboard that had been left untouched in my condo after my mother in law passed away several years ago. I found this amazing old cookbook of hers from her birth town of Oswego, New York. The cookbook has a date of 1890 and while it has some pretty cool recipes it also held this little treasure that I would like to share with you as we begin a new year. The title is:

Take time for 10 things:

  • Take time to Work- it is the price of success
  • Take time to Think- it is the source of power
  • Take time to Play- it is the secret of youthTake Time
  • Take time to Read-it is the foundation of knowledge
  • Take time to Worship-it is the highway of reverence and washes the dust of earth from our eyes
  • Take time to Help and Enjoy Friends-it is the source of happiness
  • Take time to Love- it is the one sacrament of life
  • Take time to Dream-it hitches the soul to the stars
  • Take time Laugh-it is the singing that helps with life’s loads
  • Take time to Plan-it is the secret of being able to have time to take time for the first nine things

 Blessings for a wonderful 2016!
