A Quote About Being A VERY GOOD friend...


Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurt themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.
Gloria Naylor


My Day So Far...  Just finished watering the planters... so easily forgotten, so I'm giving you a heads up!!!

My Happy Thoughts For Today

 I don't seem to take the time to think about the little "happy things" that happen throughout the day! This morning at breakfast, I saw the dew glittering in the sunshine and that reminded me of an old wives tale about washing your face in the dew on May 1st and how it is supposed to erase wrinkles. LOL... that made me grin.

A Quote About Mosquitos... lol and The Midsummer Night Itch

 "Mosquito is out,
it's the end of the day;
she's humming and hunting
her evening away.
Who knows why such hunger
arrives on such wings
at sundown? I guess
it's the nature of things."

My Quote About Fireworks

"Touch was important. The evening of the Third of July we would go around the neighborhood and look at the fireworks others had bought, take the out of the brown paper sack and handling them cautiously as if they were precious stones. There was envy when we saw sacks with more in them than we had."
Paul Engle

 
My Day So Far...  Okay, this one I understand and probably did as a kid.  The bags of fireworks when I was a kid was nothing like you can get now... but it was still so exciting!!

A Quote About The Surprises

 "Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear or feel it when it comes to us. let's not be afraid to receive each day's surprise, when it comes to us as sorrow or as joy. It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully, our shared humanity."
Henri Nouwen


My Day So Far... See if there are any flowers  blooming in your garden. They will look so pretty sitting on the kitchen table or on a window sill.

My Thoughts For This Morning


If you are working outside this summer, you really need to keep your hair covered... whether it is colored or not. The sun can do some really nasty things to it. You need to start taking care of it just like you do your skin!!

 
My Day So Far... So far this summer, I haven't ventured even a few steps without a sun hat. It keeps the sun out of my eyes, preventing me from squinting... and protects my hair!

A Quote About The Loss of a Friend

Joseph Roux
