Several years ago, I created Proverbial Friday on my blog. Wise words that contain lessons and messages about how to manage our life and find more contentment, if only we can think about and dissect their words. I love a good discussion so join with me each Friday and share your thoughts on the quotes and proverbs I post. I love comments.
Wise words to make us ponder more about our life, our world and our role within it. Sayings handed down from generations past provide powerful lessons for us. Posting on Fridays each week, Proverbial Friday gives you something vital to ponder about.
