I was tagged by Annie from McGuffy’s Reader to participate in the Three Day Quote Challenge. Yesterday I presented my first quote, and you can read that post here.
Today I am sharing my second quote in the Three Day Quote Challenge. Each of the quotes I have selected are from Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha). Here’s my second quote:
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
I selected this quote as Tom and I had a candle ceremony as part of our wedding ceremony. Like all couples, we have had our ups and downs through the years. In the 42 1/2 years that we have been married, however, I believe that we have mostly been happy. That happiness has come from supporting, loving and caring for each other. And I do know that when Tom is happy, I feel happy as well. Just as with a smile being contagious, happiness breeds happiness!
The rules of the challenge are simple. They are as follows:
1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.
Today I am selecting:
- Emily, Kitty Cat Chronicles
- Sharla, Beaded Tail
- Sherri-Ellen, Purrince Siddhartha Henry an LadyMum’ss Purrfect Pad
Of course, If any of you do not wish to participate, please don’t feel obligated.
I’ll be posting my third quote on Thursday as tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday.
