Tuesday Topics: Three Favorite Quotes

Life. Love.Lauren

Three of my favorite quotes.

I love words. I write them. I read them. 

I love them so much I have a few tattooed on my body. 

In light of our super fun celebration of my son today, here's the first quote.

In tattoo form.

1. Dum Spiro Spero

"While I breath, I hope."


2. The Watergiver

“Motherhood is about raising and celebrating the child you have, not the child you thought you would have. It's about understanding that he is exactly the person he is supposed to be. And that, if you're lucky, he just might be the teacher who turns you into the person you are supposed to be.” 
- The Water Giver


3. Frida Kahlo

"Pies, para que los quiero si tengo alas para volar."
“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?” 

I'm not particularly into Frida Kahlo but my son's Physical Therapist is heavily involved in Special Olympics and got the quote above tattooed on her ribs.

When I thought about those kids in Special Olympics and I thought about my son and MyTeam Triumph, I thought about how some of those kids, including my son, don't necessarily have legs and feet that work for them. But they've still been able to spread their wings and fly.

What are your favorite quotes?

  2. I love the meaning behind the last quote, and I also love that you have the first quote tattoo'd on you! I've really wanted to get another quote tattoo. I told my boyfriend that if it were up to me I would be covered in words ha ha!

    1. I love the meaning behind the last quote, too! I've even considered stealing it from her and tattooing it on me! I'm all for tattooing more words. It's better than a lot of things people get!
