Bird Figurine Series - # 7

  The dove is a symbol of peace.  Throughout life we face various challenges and we strive to find peace.  As  Eleanor Roosevelt once said "It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it."

I love your collection as I have said before. Your Eleanor quote is right on. One of my granddaughters is named for her. I hope she gets her wisdom as well as her name.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks retired not tired. It is wonderful that one of your granddaughters was named after Eleanor Roosevelt. Take care and enjoy the rest of your Thursday.

My sister-in-law always calls me when she sees a dove. She takes it as a good sign, always. :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Definitely a wonderful sign mail4rosey! Have a good weekend.

Lucy said...

Sometimes we forget to see the beauty in simple figurines and I love the way you tied the Doves to Eleanor Roosevelt's quote for striving for peace. As she so aptly stated not an easy task but one we should continue to work hard to obtain. Thanks for the reminder.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot Lucy! Have a good weekend.
