Favorite Phrase Friday

Here are a few phrases I found scattered around the internet this week.
For one reason or another, they make my heart smile.

That is the gift of this mothering life that we lead, isn’t it?  The magic is there in every nook and cranny.
(from These Little Waves)

I must be doing something right no matter how many things are wrong.
(from A Day in Mollywood)

I don’t care who you are or how much you think you have to offer others or how much you think you lack. In the span of five seconds, you can make a deposit of grace into the life of another human being. A smile, a kind word, a timely hug, a short email, a silly text message. 
(from SortaCrunchy)

But inside, my heart smiles.
My soul feels a spark it hasn’t felt in months.
(from Sluiter Nation)

I smile to myself, lost in thought. Each morning is a carbon copy of the last, and for some reason today this thought comforts me.  
(from One Crafty Mother)

Sometimes I like to call myself a photographer the same way Addie likes to call herself a grownup. Sure she’s more grownup than she was four years ago but she still has a very long way to go. I’m better at taking pictures now than I was four years ago but I still have a very long way to go too.
(from Moosh in Indy)

I think I’m a pretty good friend. A thoughtful one. But something has occurred to me recently. I’ve realized that I am a really good friend during the best times, and worst…But am I good friend during the regular times, the times that are neither triumphant nor tragic? I don’t know. These tend to be the quiet times in my friendships, the times when days and weeks and months slip by without true contact or connection. These tend to be the times when laziness – or is it just real life? – takes over. I don’t know. But I think it is worth thinking about. Because maybe, just maybe, it is these “normal” times when friendship matters most?
(from Ivy League Insecurities)
