Do you remember. . .

selling coke bottles for 2 cents each so you could buy penny candy?

wearing a skate key tied around your neck so you would always be ready for your roller skates?

cat's cradle and other string games?

Ma and Pa Kettle, The Three Stooges and Spanky and Our Gang at the movies?

playing paper dolls for hours on end. . .Yes, I am feeling a little nostalgic today, dear friends. Hope you have many happy memories from your "growing up days". God bless each and every one of you!

There are five things in life you cannot recover...

A stone...after it is thrown.

A word. . .after it is said.

An occasion. . .after it is missed.

The time. . .after it is gone.

A person. . .after they die.

Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. And never regret anything that made you smile! Enjoy life!

Love me tender. . .

While all the girls my age in the 1960's were going crazy over the Beatles, I was secretly in love with this guy!

Love me tender,

Love me true,

All my dreams fulfilled.

For my darling I love you,

And I always will.

I once read. . .

God gives us memories so that. . .
we can have roses in winter. . .

and so today, I am thinking back on my spring garden. . .

and enjoying my roses once again!

Hope you are having some good memories today, dear friends! God bless each and everyone of you!

Let gratitude. . .

be the pillow. . .

upon which you kneel. . .

to say your nightly prayer. . .~Maya Angelou

I ask God to remind me daily to have a thankful and generous heart. There are so many people hurting, suffering during these tough economic times. People wondering if they will keep their jobs or will they find a job or will there be food on their table and a roof over their head. Lord, let me never complain and help me see those who are in need of Your Touch each and every day.
