Share a Quote from a Great Book #1

I hope this new blog post will be a recurring, motivational post. Short but sweet.

Let's start with my favorite author, Dr. Bertice Berry.

With her characteristic sense of humor and a good dose of motherly wit, Bertice Berry spins the endearing tale of Jim and Louella Johnson, an elderly couple in a southern town who have settled into a marriage that has long lost its pizzazz. Louella, fed up with her lackluster love life, decides to contact her departed ancestors for some advice. Conjuring up her mother, grandmother, and aunt in a dream, she receives a delightful lesson in reigniting the fires of love.

Even more startling, the Johnsons discover they can help others rejuvenate their passions, heal their hearts, and mend their souls.

I love this quote in the graphic above. In this crazy and divisive world, learning this lesson is essential. Change is gonna come, like it or not. Slow down, reflect, and assess how this will affect your life, and then realize that this change will have a positive effect if you are willing to roll with it.

Bertice Berry is my soulmate. Having met her in 2005, we reconnected on Twitter (of all places). I answered a nudge tweet from @DrBerticeBerry: "If you could do something new and different, what would it be?" My answer: "Illustrated a children's book." The start of something good. Bertice wrote a story several years ago, and I added illustrations to her text.

Re-read the quote. Seasons change, weather changes, eras change, cultures change, and people change.

"I learned a long time ago that when change comes, you gotta slow down and take note of it. In the midst of that change is all the possibility in the world."

How do YOU deal with change?
