For all of us.

And I would like to share this…

I'm afraid I don't know who wrote this but I got it from my mother.

Love them all. Thank you.

I love the Cherokee legend Shinamae
I will keep that with me

I love them all!

The I'm fine resonates with me! That's what I always answer to any questions about me health.
However, one day I said this to my cardiologist and he answered, You are not really fine, are you? grin

I'm going to save the Cherokee one, too!

I hope you don't mind Shinamae, I have edited your quote (I liked it so much), so that I can print it out.

Love these, thank you. The poem made me chuckle.
My husband always says “not too bad!”

Grannybags Fri 05-Aug-22 09:55:12

Love these!

I was brought up to answer 'I'm fine' if I was asked how I was - even if my leg was broken!

Serendipity22 Fri 05-Aug-22 10:55:50

Yes, absolutely, I reply when asked how I am ohh im fine. I refuse point blank to let anything negative to circulate the room hahahaha.......

Positivity lifts us up, up, up.

Love this quote, Shinamae

I was brought up to say I'm fine and still do it when the Dr .phones luckily she laughs and just asks what the problem is.
I do it at the Dentist and then give him a list of what has cracked or dropped off.
We've just had visitors among decoraters etc. I was really on my knees but when asked replied "I'm fine". It was considered polite not to give chapter and verse about ailments.

Oh gosh Chestnut I feel sure my nana used to quote bits from that one, my DM certainly did. Thank you!

Maybe it was doing the rounds of elderly ladies' groups!

‘Mustn’t grumble!’ is IMO a classic old response.

I came across this on Facebook recently. It's about the person you see in the mirror. It resonated with me:

I've told my mum off for saying 'I'm fine' to the doctor! I love the quotes very much. Great for self-doubters the first one. The light and dark motto should go on my wall now!

Chestnut, I found that poem among my Dad's things. He often used to quote from it, especially that his get up and go had got up and went.

I like to think that I feed the light and hope wolf but the other one sometimes steals his food.

AGA, or chases him out of the kitchen? 🐺

I always ask people who say "im fine" "honestly how are you REALLY?" but never tell anyone how i am .
