“Things can be cleaned and replaced. Great moments cannot afford to be lost.”
Cindy Woodsmall, The Bridge of Peace

“In any serious relationship, if you don't gather your partner's opinion before making a decision that impacts you both, you're just storing up trouble for the future.”
Cindy Woodsmall, The Christmas Singing

“Facing our fears, skeletons, and mistakes is paramount in finding ourselves-in living with ourselves. Once it's done, that fear will be laid to rest, and she'll be stronger for having dealt with it and have more peace becausse she's not carrying the weight of that fear every day and night.”
Cindy Woodsmall, When the Soul Mends
