Sunday Citar - Pain

Tabitha @ Fresh Mommy hosts the Sunday Citar meme - pop on over and have a look,
I am sure she would love you to join in too.

Last Sunday I hurt my back making the bed, this Sunday I am still in a lot of pain, so I was off in search of quotes to share.

Pain is deeper than all thought; laughter is higher than all pain ... Elbert Hubbard

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional ... author unknown

We cannot learn without pain ... Aristotle

So how can I relate to these 3 quotes, well:

Today I will try and laugh more, after all on Friday when I looked after my littlest grand-daughter, we had so much laughter that I almost forgot my pain.

This week I will not wallow in my pain, I will acknowledge that it is there but I will refuse to suffer.

I will learn my lesson and not made the bed anymore ... well maybe, I will be more careful when I make the bed, I know I have had a bad back for years and have got lax in looking after it.

So my friends, I wish you a lifetime free of pain, and if for some reason it occasionally still pops into your life, remember to laugh. xxx


  1. Love the quotes!! How true!! Sometimes we need a little pain to jolt us back into appreciating the little things in life.

    Have a blessed Sunday!

  2. Great quotes. Hope you are pain free soon!

  3. Oh! I love laughter. What a brilliant quote. Perfection.

  4. all 3 are great quotes. definitely things to encourage you to press on when you are facing painful circumstances.
