I believe there is a daily need for one to be reminded

to live a life full of hope. Favorite quotations can

be inspirational positive reinforcement,

a source of encouragement , and

great reminders.

I always felt that the great high privilege,

relief, and comfort of friendship was that

one had to explain nothing.

~ Katherine Mansfield

Sometimes it is necessary for us to speak.

At other times it is important that we be quiet.

Wisdom comes with knowing the difference.

~ Mrs. D.E. Clay

We must not, in trying to think about how we

can make a big difference, ignore the small

daily differences we can make which, over

time, add up to big differences that

we often cannot foresee.

~ Marian Wright Edelman


The clock is ticking. So spend it wisely. Make the most of today.

To realize the value of one year, ask a student who failed a grade.

To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who's expecting

a baby. To realize the value of one hour, ask people who love

each other waiting to meet. To realize the value of one minute,

ask a person who missed their plane. To realize the value of

one millisecond, ask the Olympic winner of the silver medal.

Treasure each and every moment that you have;

time waits for no one.

This picture so reminds me of my Grandma. Even her build is similar.

The other thing is the lay-out of this kitchen area. Her kitchen had the

double windows above the sink if I remember right, cabinets similar

and in the same area(s) ... Oh my, brings back wonderful memories

of her standing at the sink.

While you will notice I post more cat/kitten pictures,

only because cats are my favorite,

I do love dogs as well and will post them on occasion.

Just look at ALL this "stuff"


You took the time, thank you!

What a wonderful feeling

this can be!

I hope you all had a good weekend. Mine

was very good. And again, still trying to

warm up and stay dry for a few days

here in Ohio. A lot of rain and cool days

and nights ... Have a wonderful day and

do join me again tomorrow! It is truly all of

you and your appreciation for what I try

and do  here each day. I draw my strength

from all of you. Thank you for visiting.

And now till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
