Quote of the Day Challenge Day Three

Here's my third and final quote for the Quote of the Day challenge. :)

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

                                                                               ~Frodo and Gandalf, The Fellowship of the Ring

I love this reminder from J.R.R. Tolkien that while I may not be able to control what happens in the world around me, I can always choose how to act in the midst of the challenges I face. :)

Thanks for tagging me for this challenge, Treesa! :)

That's a very appropriate quote for the days we live in. Thanks for reminding me of it.

You're welcome, Carrickters. :) I needed the reminder, too. ;)

Hello Beastbelle! Belated birthday greetings to Oldest Gal! If you're wondering where I knew her birthday, I read it on another post. Speaking of birthdays, when is yours? I know it's in September, like mine, but when is is the exact date? I want to send you an e-card when it comes!

Thanks, Joanne! :) I'll be sure to pass the message along to her. I didn't do anything about their actual birthdays on the blog this year (aside from the birthday trip), but I will probably share a little bit about them in an upcoming post. :)

My birthday is September 28th. I'll be thirty-five this year. :)
