This week’s wise words come from author April Sinclair. I fell in love with her books in my youth and think she is one of the most unsung authors of our time. #www

Wise Words Wednesday – Little House

This week’s wise words come from a television show that I was obsessed with as a child. Little House on the Prairie was a staple in my upbringing. It taught me all kinds of life lessons and I thank Michael Landon, aka Pa, for that. This quote was from an episode where a mother was sick and knew she didn’t have long to live. She told this to her children and it is very relevant in my life these days since I recently lost my mom.

Remember me with smiles and laughter, because that's how I will remember you. If you can only remember me with tears, then don't remember me at all.

This week’s Wise Words come from motivational speaker and author, John Maxwell. He usually speaks about leadership and business, however his words can be used in everyday life as well. I was first introduced to his work when I was working as a manager for a Fortune 500 company in Atlanta. He had given a speech to the executives and they purchased books for middle management. I found so much truth in his words and have been a fan ever since. Here’s one of my favorite quotes from him:
