Today I’m feeling like I did every year on the last day of school. It’s the end of this month’s Heart to Heart series, and there are so many things left to say.
I wanted to encourage you not to give up on your New Year’s Resolutions, and remind you that it’s never too late to start over.
I wanted to ask you if you’ve noticed how women sometimes treat each other like the enemy and to share my thoughts on why I think that is.
And I wanted to apologize for not being here for our heart to heart last week.
But, as this series comes to an end, I can rest easy knowing I’m leaving you in the capable hands of our contributor Laura from Inspiration for Moms. Today, she is sharing an inspirational quote to encourage us when we’re carrying around regrets, doubts or disappointments.
They’re all yours, Laura.
Sometimes life can be very disappointing. It will sneak up when you least expect it.
That’s what happened to me last weekend and in return, I had a hard time all last week. I tried to not focus on it. I tried to redirect my energy to more positive thoughts. But the disappointment was still lingering.
After a few days of reflecting, I realized that I’m letting the past dictate my future. And that was just crazy! It was time for a change.
I felt this quote was exactly what I needed to remind me that the future is full of unknown beauty. I don’t want to drag my past disappointment around with me anymore. I am going to enjoy the blessings of today and look forward to the future!
If you would like to keep this quote near you as a reminder, simply right-click on the image and save to your computer. Then you can print it and place it anywhere you like.
Do you know how much I LOVE connecting with you?!

Thank you, Laura, for those wise words. And I’m sorry you had a rough week last week.
That quote reminds me of one of my favorite verses in the Bible, “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23.
See you in class,
