My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels

Door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into Springs

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites

When the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don't feel so bad.

Pretty women....

Pretty women


Sipping coffee,

Dancing... pretty women

Pretty women

Are a wonder.

Pretty women!

Sitting in the window or

Standing on the stair

Something in them cheers the air.

Pretty women


Stay within you,

Glancing... stay forever,

Breathing lightly...

Pretty women,

Pretty women!

Blowing out their candles or

Combing out their hair,

Even when they leave

They still are there.

They're there

Ah! Pretty women, at their mirrors,

In their gardens,




How they make a man sing!

Proof of heaven as you're living,

Pretty women! Yes, pretty women!

Here's to pretty women,

Pretty women,

Pretty women,

Pretty women

"How Life Works"


Don't cry because its over,
smile because it happened.

When the world seems cold,
light a fire

Happiness is good health,
and a bad memory.

Pain and Suffering is inevitable
but Misery is optional.

Some people pursue happiness,
others create it.

Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called: The Present.

A good exercise for the heart is to
bend down and help another up.

Happiness is not a destination,
it's a manner of travelling.

Life is what you make of it...
kinda like Play-Doh

The babbling brook would lose its song
if you removed the rocks.

Happiness comes through doors
you didn't even know you left open.

Bloom where you are planted.

Everything is always okay in the end,
if it's not, then it's not the end.

If all my friends jumped off a cliff,
I wouldn't jump with them.
I would be at the bottom to catch them.

If you want to see a rainbow,
you have to put up with a little rain.

Here is a test to find whether your
mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.

Happiness is not perfected until it's shared.

So be happy!
Don't let anything burst your balloon!
Make the most of what you have
And if life hands you lemons, make lemonade!

A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
-Helen Steiner Rice, A MOTHER'S LOVE

Life is a lot of work. What is it that gives us the strength to continue when we are tired and burned out? Sometimes an inspirational idea can help us renew ourselves and be filled with strength to fulfill our life's purpose. Inspiration comes in many forms. However, the root of all inspiration is the idea that our lives are meaningful. Inspiration is knowing that what I do matters deeply to the universe. When you have the feeling that your actions are meaningful, you will become filled with strength and vigor to fulfill your life's purpose.
"A mother's arms are more comforting than anyone else's." -- Diana, Princess of Wales

Finding Your Prince Charming....

                               Asking someone how to find true love is like asking a crowd of people what their favorite food is. The      answer is  different depending on who it comes from. Truthfully, there is no one tried and true way to find love. Of course, your idea of the perfect guy may be completely different from someone else's idea of the perfect guy. It comes differently for everyone, but here are a few suggestions to point you in the right direction.
1. Get out there! Have a social life. You will never find true love if you don't socialize and meet new people. Go places with your friends, enjoy yourself. You don't have to go looking for love, but get out there hoping that love will find you! Have a great time and love will come right to your door! Here is a great little piece of advice. If you don't want to meet an alcoholic, don't hang out in bars. Sure, there are great guys in bars and clubs, but most of them are there for the drinking. If you don't want to meet a total nerd, don't hang out at a computer programmer convention. Joking aside, find the places where your types of guys hang out. You will be more likely to find someone you really identify with.
2. Be who you are. Don't try to change yourself in order to find true love. You will not be able to find someone who loves you for you if you are being someone else! Show your own traits and charms and wait for the person who loves each one of those traits and charms! It's like putting an ad in the paper. You can dress up your old car to make it sound like a brand new piece of machinery, but why not be truthful and wait for that person who wants nothing other than a fine classic automobile?
3. Look at your options! You might be desperate for love. However, entering a relationship before you're ready could be the biggest mistake you will ever make. Most relationships that start out this way do not last and only create problems for the future. Be sure you truly like someone before starting a relationship with them. Spend time with him and find out what kind of person he is before you decide if you want to take things further.
4. Don't be afraid of blind dates and matchmakers! While many people are too nervous to go out on dates that their friends set them up with, you shouldn't. Just go into it expecting to have a great time and you may be surprised.
True love is not necessarily something you can go out and hunt down - it's usually something you stumble into before you realize what's going on. The key is to be able to tell the difference between the guy that might make your ego bigger and the guy that makes your heart skip a beat! However, following the tips above may help you stumble faster! Good luck.

Today is my Oldest Daughters Birthday...

Happy Birthday My wonderful daughter
I know I say it alot, but I can't help myself
I absolutely love you
There is nothing in this world I wouldn't do for you
And everything I wish I could give you
You deserve it all and so much more
I thank my lucky stars for you everyday
And I am so proud of the young woman you have become
You are the light of my life, the joy in my soul
I hope I have brought half the joy to you
That you have brought to me
May all your dreams come true
Remember to dream big nothing is out of reach
But be sure to catch all the small
Joys along the way, there will be alot
Now that you're a mother you know what I mean
All the dreams and love you have for
Your little one, are the ones I have for you.
                                Love, Mom
