Happy Quote Monday! I have been going through a rough week with the height of it being bit by the neighbor’s dog yesterday! It wasn’t the dog’s fault, she was acting on instinct because she got her leg caught in part of our fence and I was trying to help her get it out. It was an incredibly stressful moment! Also, don’t worry, dog is fine and no skin was broken, just a sore bruised left hand, I will be okay. This quote has really gotten me through!

This week will be better, I know it :) Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Thank you for reading/looking!

    Sorry to hear about the dog bite. Had to be scary. I like this quote much better than a current incarnation from ChumbaWamba: “I get knocked down, but I get up again…” 😏

  • Thank you, Keith! :) It was something I’ve not experienced before! lol at the ChumbaWamba quote ;D
