Welcome to another “Spark On Monday” here at These Days. Each Monday, a quote or saying is shared to perhaps encourage others.
The blogger who began this meme ( Annie McGuffy at McGuffy’s Reader) is no longer blogging, but some bloggers are carrying on the tradition.
My spark today is a quote I read in a magazine MANY years ago…probably when I was in my twenties. I had no idea that it was taken from an old poem, and although I think of it often, I had never researched it on the internet until this morning. The poem, “The Wearie Wayfarer”, was written in the 1800’s by Adam Lindsay Gordon, an Australian poet.
From the first time I read this, it made perfect sense to me: life really is fragile and unpredictable. But there is strength in our kindness to those who are struggling and in facing our own problems the best we can.
~These Days Of Mine~
Thanks for the reminder that kindness should be my motto today and everyday.
If everyone felt this way it would be a much happier world!
These great writers are great for a reason …. !
A perfect spark for what this world needs so much.
Good words for this time – just goes to show you that some writers’ words are timeless, aren’t they?
