What a wonderful little hobbit you have! Wow... [In reply to] Can't Post

There are so many wisdoms I've gleaned from Tolkien that I know I can't list them all. Some are:

"'Tell me, who are you, alone, yourself and nameless?'" [Bombadil]
...This crosses my mind so often. Especially when I'm a bit down or overwhelmed. I stop, take a breath, and think of this phrase. Am I fighting against myself, or trying to push for something I really shouldn't be? It helps me to keep things simple, or to realize I'm off track.

"'Talking won't mend nothing.'" [Sam in Mordor with Frodo]
...There are times when I've talked something to death. Worried it, tried to influence it, driven myself crazy trying to sort it out. Sometimes, no is the right answer.

" ...Frodo stood near the open door and watched the white chalky path turn into a little river of milk and go bubbling away down into the valley. Tom Bombadil came trotting round the corner of the house waving his arms as if he was warding off the rain—and indeed when he sprang over the threshold he seemed quite dry, except for his boots..."
... I just love this. It makes me think that anything is possible.

"'I wish it need not have happened in my time,' said Frodo.
'So do I,' said Gandalf, 'and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us..."
... This is obvious. Not only to use your time wisely and in the best way you can... but also not to be selfish with it.

"There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world." [Thorin to Bilbo]
... This goes hand-in-hand with the "time that is given to you" thoughts, imho. Extend yourself to those around you and help when they need you, but to also cherish the simple things in life.

There are many more... but I'm out of time.

Wonderful post, Arandiel... and give your little princeling a hug for me :)
