The Best Advice


Sometimes advice comes from the places you'd least expect. Tonight I heard a little bit of wisdom that was attributed to a humble-yet-strong woman of legendary talent. No matter what your struggle is, I think this says it as well as anything:

"Hunker down and press on"--June Carter Cash

My favorite advice along these lines came from a smart Southern lady at my church. During a time of discord she advised us to "Shut up and be gracious!"

I needed that this morning. Maybe today I'll change my clothes (it's been one of the weeks - 2 days in - already).

Yay for the Golden Globes. They actually got it right. That movie was awesome and June is one of my heroines, musically and otherwise.

True. My personal favorite quote (that I made up) is when life throws you a curveball, start beating people with your bat.

Jane Seymour said that June Carter once told her that too. :)
