Rod McKuen – A Words Crush Wednesday Quote

momma'spics 038It’s nice sometimes

to open up the heart a little

and let some hurt come in.

It proves you’re still alive.

Rod McKuen, Listen to the Warm

This Rod McKuen quote means a lot to me.  Although we enjoy most the times in life when everything is going great, we have to admit and accept that there will be times of paint where things are not all right. We have to allow ourselves to feel those  times as well if for no other reason than to appreciate more the wonderful times.


On Wednesdays I participate in Words Crush Wednesday Favorite Quote Challenge hosted by Rebirth of Lisa. Check out the blog and join the fun.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog for without them, I wouldn’t have found your lovely blog! It appears that we are nearly the same age as Rod McKuen was SUCH a part of my teenage years 🙂

    I’ve spent some time looking through your blog and have so enjoyed myself–you are a wonderful writer and I enjoyed seeing that your cross stitch as well! Already looking forward to your next post…

      Thank you for visiting, for commenting and for your praise. (Blush) I have enjoyed viewing your blog and am very much taken with your cross stitch. It is so motivating to me to see others’ work.

    He was part of my teenage years too. I had a couple of his albums. You and I have had conversations about feeling all the feelings deeply. I am glad for us both that we can.

    I guess I am somewhat repititious with the same themes, but they are a true representation of who I am. I also am glad about feeling deeply and always appreciative of others who are much the same.
