Must Not Forget To Share

My Beautiful Birthday Flowers from my Special Friend. Aren't they lovely?

 The Lilies are stunning. and, I am sure I will be able to enjoy these lovelies for many days.

This year's birthday was so much different than I ever anticipated for this milestone of 75 years. By this time in life if we haven't learned to roll with what life we are given it would be quite sad. Eventually, life will resume some rhythm of normalcy if there is such a way of life at this stage. Now, I can look forward to the next milestone birthday - 80!!! My mother and grandmother had longevity!!! I'm up for it if the quality of life is reasonable. And, if it isn't, I'll persevere. Life has not been easy but then, "nobody promised me a rose garden". I have had to create my own and I have been given many blessings.

When I see my adult children it is strange to realize that I am this age. But, then, I get a kick out of hearing them start to experience some of the issues that come along with middle age. If I can't remember something they aren't critical but just get the smile that quietly says "Ya, we know!" Isn't life interesting?

We still plan to do some travelling within the state in the near future. But, we still have concerns with Lily and her current needs. I prefer not to leave her at the Boarder even though it would be at the Veterinary location. Time will tell.

Thanks for listening to my little philosophic views.

Hope your day is Very Enjoyable.

So Sad When Others Can Not Be Happy With Their Father's Happiness

How is that for a Post Title?

      Scary, isn't it?
           Unfortunate, isn't it?
                 Sad, isn't it?
                        Curious, isn't it? 
                              Immature, isn't it? 
                                     Disappointing, isn't it?
                                           Selfish, isn't it?

Wouldn't the world be a nicer place if all of us could sincerely share in another person's happiness by also being happy? And, then pass it along to another person  -  And, then another person  -  And, then, on and on. 

Just a little Food For Thought.


Look out! Happiness can be contagious. But, it is a Good Thing to have!

Looks Good And Is Good

Yummy, yummy home cooked food. Nothing fancy, just good cooking and good flavors. I am really enjoying cooking again. And, cooking healthy food is more important now, than ever in the past. As Ricky Gervais said on the Pierce Morgan show,  "Life is good and I don't want to blow it".

Now, don't get me wrong. I love food ~ pretty much ~~~ all food and especially desserts. And, you can't go wrong if it's chocolate! 

This is what I came up with for dinner. No recipe, just some of this and some of that.


 






Now, don't misunderstand me. Restaurant food can be "mind blowing". But, moderation is important. And, given the expense of eating out in these recessionary times, I would like to think of "dinner out" as a special treat! Actually, that is how I have always thought about eating out unless it is a quick pickup.

During these times, there are so many people that can use some help. And, I wish there was more that I could do. It just doesn't feel right to spend money frivolously for self gratification, indulgence and exhibition on a regular/daily basis! It seems rather hedonistic. I have always felt this way and I guess I will never change that attitude.

Perhaps, I can return to some charity knitting/crocheting. I'm going to think about that. 

Help someone today, if you can. Even a "kind word" can be a huge gift for someone in need!
