That Silent Tear
The song plays and a silent tear rolls down her check
She can never forget the sacrifices so many made
The many notices of another life lost
All the condolences sent out to the Families
Nor can she forget those who returned with torn bodies and souls
Yes the song plays and the tears silently fall
Because she knows her Brothers and Sisters who wore the Uniforms
Will also remember with sadness in their…Continue

Yep it's one of those days when I think of times past... Wooden boxes held everything, no cardboard or plastics back then, milk in gallon cans or glass milk bottles and paper was never thrown on the ground instead it was saved to put under the kindling to start a fire in the wood cook stove...Sure life was never easy back then…Continue

?? Gracefully Broken!
I was in Dollar Tree last night, and there was a lady and two kids behind me in the LONG line. One was a big kid, and the other one was a toddler. The bigger one had a pack of glow sticks, and the toddler was screaming for them. The Mom opened the pack and gave him one which stopped his tears. He walked around with it smiling; but then the bigger boy took it, and the toddler started screaming again. Just as the Mom was about to fuss, the older child bent the glow…
Something to smile about, a lot to ponder upon, but all with a gem of positive thought for you.
A Great Lesson on Stress
A young lady confidently walked around the room with a raised glass of water while leading a seminar and explaining stress management to her audience. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'Half empty or half full?' She fooled them all. "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a smile. Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. To…Continue

From the time I first arrived
I could hear those faint voices
Whispering just above me
No one speaking really aloud
Some sniffling from those who were crying
As they started gathering all around me
Then came the silence for a moment
Just before the preacher started speaking
Telling everyone why it is they should be here
For this final gathering
Saying what for man in life I had been
Talking about some of the good…

If you don't have someone to tell you NO.
NEVER NEVER EVER
Buy your Halloween Candy early
Especially if your a person who has a sweet tooth
I think I have enough candy left to last me another day or two.
Think I'll wait until the 30th before buying more candy.
Guess I figured out what my New Years resolution will be
Buy 3 times more Candy than I did this year so I don't have to go shopping twice..…
