Toni, from A Daily Dose of Toni has this great weekly ritual of posting Favorite Quotes - the quotes that people come up with are very inspiring, so if you haven't had a chance to check out Quotable Sunday, now's your chance! ;)

This week I have chosen quotes about 'Appreciation'...since the whole household has been sick this week, I thought it quite appropriate. :) I'm taking it easy today since I did end up overdoing it yesterday with my bi-monthly grocery shopping - so today I'm going to appreciate finally starting to feel better, and will remind myself to appreciate feeling 100% again! ;) Enjoy!

I feel so under appreciated some days with only a 12 year old in the house! She even wants ME to PUSH the button in the front of our new (preowned) mini van to open her side door.... I should have put a PRINCESS in front of her royal name!
