41:52 {anchors & hopes}

Motivational Monday

A ship should not ride on a single anchor, nor a life on a single hope.

This quote reminds me of a good friend. Lee.  While Lee has many Lee-isms, one of the more common quotes I've heard from him in conversation is, "A ship in the harbor is safe, but that's not why it's built".  This relates to this weeks quote from the same view point that a ship has an anchor to help stabilize but it should not rely only on the anchor for safety or longevity of the journey.  Just as it is important that one does not live their life with only one earthly hope.  Lee is not one who anchors his life on one hope.  If I lived closer to Lee I would have dropped in this week to take a photo of him to go along with this post.

Instead, I anchored my focus on the famous nose of Nadia.

oh that cute little button nose

I think I'll have it imprinted and made into a necklace pendant.

Nadia is one of my life's anchors.  Outside of hopes that can be seen on earth, I do have one main hope that extends beyond life; that when my body ceases to function that my soul would be heaven bound.
