Tuesday Tidbits #141


Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!


To the hunter, a moonless night and the rain are a blessing.

I remember when parents did not have the overwhelming need to be their child’s best friend. And I think we were better off for it.

Many people have issues with the increasing “wokeness” of our society. My response is, “When do think we will have slept long enough?”

Sometimes I feel like every time I must remember something important, it pushes some knowledge I haven’t used in a while out of my head. I just never know what it is I lost and won’t know till I go for it, and it is not there.

I grew up in the generation that still remembers their home phone number from their childhood because we had to dial it so many times.

Smiles are easy, free, and contagious.

When you are wronged or hurt by another, you cannot sit in silence waiting for an apology or acknowledgement of the transgression. You must speak up for yourself. It may not lead to a reconciliation, but it won’t be because they did not know.


Now get out there and write something!

    Once again, you hit the nail on the head with every single one of these!

  3. 564-0675 and it was JO4-0675 before that! The last tidbit sparks some debate with me, only because telling someone something doesn’t mean that they will “hear” it, which leaves you no better off. Take Mary, for example, who can’t see or refuses to believe, how she has hurt us.

      I can’t remember your phone number without looking it up, but I remember that one clear as day. I agree that some people will never acknowledge their transgression, but nonetheless they will know it did not go by unnoticed. Love you, sis!

    Like usual,…they ALL bring great thoughts and memories! Thank you, Brad!

    I love your take on “woke.” Society falls in love with a term, and suddenly it’s everywhere and becomes overused. Yes, I think it’s about time we woke up and paid attention.

  6. Marvelous, one and all. I can see why you are a poet. Your senses absorb what we all see and hear and yet you naturally perceive and communicate them in such creative ways.
