From the time I was born I have had a nickname...Jewels, given to me by my dad.  Even to this day when he or my husband call me Jewels my heart melts a little.  In that spirit of melting hearts a couple of years ago I started a blog called JEWELS.  It was for myself, a place where I would post quotes or videos that I would want to refer back to when I needed a little pick me up, a laugh, inspiration, or a good dose of reality.  It has been over a year since I have posted on that blog and I was trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to accomplish with this blog.  One of those things is a little pick me up for myself and others, the same things I originally wrote the JEWELS blog for. 

Wednesday seems like a good day for a little pick me up, often referred to as hump day.  To get over that hump I will now have A Jewel with Jewels every Wednesday so here is my first jewel:

"If our actions stem from honesty, kindness, caring, and vision,
then no matter what the result of our efforts, we have added
something of value to our souls and to the world."
