Motivation Monday-Quotes to Inspire & Empower!

Greetings, Readers!
I hope this holiday Monday finds you enjoying great food, great fun and great weather ( in whatever geographic region you reside).
I thought this might be a good time to share words of inspiration and wisdom to get you through the week, as we keep those who died for our collective freedoms in our prayers and thoughts.

So grab a cup of your favorite brew and let's get started...
