My Quote Book Keepsake

All the chaos of the day has finally come to an end.  The grands have had their dinner and are quietly playing video games with their dad in the basement.  It's my quiet time now.

I came upstairs and sat on the edge of my bed and saw my quote book on the dresser.  I picked this up a few years ago at Michael's...not for any good reason....just because it was so pretty.  I know I'm not the only one who's ever done that.

The pages are lined, but plain other than that.  I had it for a while before deciding what to do with it.  I was reading some quotes on Pinterest and ran across one that I wanted to remember.  So it hit me.  I will use this book to write down quotes and wisdom that I want to remember. 

Some of my entries are....
  • I  don't know how to do this, but something inside me does. 
  • If you don't know the nature of fear, you can never be fearless.
  •  Pentecostals don't have sex standing up, because it could lead to dancing.  (A little Christian humor)
My intention with this is that when I pass on to the next life, my kids will have fun reading it.  I haven't shared with anyone in the family what I write in there, because it will spoil the surprise.

I have a few strategically placed things around the house that will leave them with good memories.  Is that weird?
