“Being able to receive gifts is a gift. When we receive gifts from others, we give them a gift of giving.”
Miriam Hurdle, Songs of Heartstrings

“An even, straight path is attractive. Its predictable routine perpetuates with no extra effort required. It becomes autopilot that leads to endless same old thing.

An uneven, windy path is unavoidable to many. Its unforeseen, exciting adventures require balance, adjustment, alertness and attention. A path that leads to a rewarding dream of your life.”
Miriam Hurdle, Songs of Heartstrings
