  1. Amen.

    I kind of like thinking of myself as a ship.

  2. Love that quote. Who is the painting by?

  3. Amen. That pretty much sums up my life over the past 2 years; my time in harbor has been scant.

  4. SOOO good. I’m going to keep this in mind…thinking about you, my friend!!

  5. Andrew van Geest

    Great quote:)

  6. So true. The harbor seems so nice but sailing the ocean is so much better.

  7. Wow, I needed to read that tonight. I hope all you’re having a good night.

  8. That quote is one of my all time favorites and I love that painting!

  9. This is my favorite quote. I have it hanging above my bed… so glad you posted this!
