Motivation Monday – Patience



“A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.” – Proverbs 19:11

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.” – Carl Jung (Psychiatrist, 1875 – 1961)

“Have patience with all things, But, first of all with yourself.” – Saint Francis de Sales (Bishop, 1567 – 1622)

Ancient Wall and Tomb in China

Daily Prompt: Ancient

We had a chance to go on a family vacation a few years ago, the seven of us. We went to China on a private tour with our own tour guide and transportation. Here is the highlight of a few ancient places we had visited.

The first location is the Great Wall in China. We went on the section of Great Wall in Beijing. The Great Wall is 2,300 years old. The official length is 21,196.18 km (13,170.7 mi).


The second location  is the Terracotta Warriors. This is the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. It is a form of funerary,  buried with the emperor in 210–209 BC, with the purpose to protect the emperor in his afterlife.


The third location is cruising along the Lee River in Guilin which is famous in its spiky mountains.


We visited many places and had a wonderful family vacation!
