“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” Thomas A. Edison

I love love love this quote.  As a child I remember that saying "TRY TRY Again."  It came from : "If at first you don't succeed, Trytrytry again. The proverb can be traced back to the writings of Thomas H. Palmer in his Teacher's Manual, and The Children of the New Forest by Frederick Marryat."

Giving up was never part of my life ever. Yes there were times of depression and sadness, but with God's eternal love and light, I learned through the years to put on a happy face, find the best I could in the day or the moment and walk forward.  Do you have any favorite memories of things you grew up with?

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’" Mark 12:30
