Keep Your Fork


For 29 Gifts, Day 28...I want to give a gift to everyone who has read my blog!  I have no way of knowing all of you...there are some people half way around the world; so to write a personal thank you is not feasible.

Instead...

I wanted to make something special for you!  I have had two quotes that I have loved for nearly forever!  I have even stenciled them on my wall. Today, I made them into free printables!  They are both 11x14 in size. Follow the links and print them out!

I love this quote! It is a great reminder that trying is enough!  Somedays, I feel like I am on a roller coaster.  One day, I handle the setbacks like a champ, the next...the rugs been pulled out from under me and I don't know which way is up! I hate those moments when I am weak and tired but this helps me be gentle and forgiving of myself.

I love the story that goes along with this quote!  A young lady was dying of a terminal disease.  She met with her Pastor to discuss her last wishes and plans for the funeral.  She requested that she be buried with a fork in her hand.  The Pastor asked why.

The woman explained, "In all my years of attending church socials and potluck dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitable say to everyone, 'Keep your fork.'  It was my favorite time of the dinner, because I knew something better was coming, like velvety chocolate cake or deep dish apple pie-something wonderful.  So, I want people to see me there in that casket with a fork in my hand and wonder, "What's with the fork?"  Then, I want you to tell them, "Keep your fork, because the best is yet to come."

Even though this life throws all sorts of curve balls at us...I know that the best is yet to come!

I hope you enjoy these printables!  Thank you for reading and supporting our family.
