Even on our best days

Even on our best days we need to remember how loved we are.
Because even on our best days we forget this.
And even on our best days we don't deserve it.
But even on our best days we desperately need it.

"Men more frequently require to be reminded than informed."
Samuel Johnson

love love love this!! i think sometimes that's why we have to go through the highs and lows (especially the lows) of life to remember these simple truths!!

the samuel johnson quote is great too. i find i do much better with "reminders" than "must's"!!

thanks for your kind & humorous response to me this week!

Samuel Johnson was certainly had a point!

Am I more forgetful than ill-informed? Probably. I have certainly read more good things than I have retained.

I am especially grateful to freinds, family, bloggers and the like - who have often reminded me of pertinent things, at pertinent times.
