Be Kind

“Life is just a short walk from the cradle to the grave-and it sure behooves us to be kind to one another along the way.”

~Alice Childress

Today is one of those rainy days that can “darken” your mood.  I like rainy days, but some people don’t because it brings them down.

Be especially kind to others today, the weather may be messing with their moods.

Have a wonderful day!

Music

Last night, I had the pleasure of going the the musical “Motown” in Peoria.
What a good show!

As my friend Beth and I were driving to Peoria, singing to the 70’s channel on Sirius radio, I noticed how good we sounded and I told her, “We sound pretty good!” to which she replied, “I know!”

I am constantly amazed at the talent that exists in our world. From Beth and I singing in the car, to the amazing talent in last nights musical. Go to a local theater production or watch any of the many “talent” shows on TV, we are surrounded by talent.

When I was in high school, I was in Robed Choir. We were all good singers, but there were some students whose talent rose above the rest. Shelley, was a soprano and now lives in New York, last I heard, she had left singing opera to become a teacher of the art.

The guy that played the piano for us, Jeff, could play any song, anyone shouted out. I have no idea where he is and what he’s doing, but man that guy could play.

Another guy, Tracy, plays guitar in Tony Orlando’s band. I think of those days often.

Talent, it’s everywhere!! Humans are amazing! The things we can do!!

Have a great day!!

What a Beautiful Day!

What a BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!
The sun is shining the breeze is blowing and the air is warm!
These kind of perfect days are few and far between, so when they occur, I try to enjoy them as much as I can!!
I was able to have my lunch outside the school on the swing.
I love that feeling. Swinging back and forth, feeling the breeze and noticing things around me. The buckeye tree has dropped all it’s buckeyes and the leaves are starting to shed. The clouds that pass overhead change shapes so quickly, I tried to take a photo of some clouds behind the school smoke stack because it looked like the chimney was puffing smoke but I was too slow with my camera to get the shot!

This week is a full one for me. I have my lists created and my pen is ready to mark off completed tasks!!
What a wonderful life!! Things to do and enjoy, people to see and share time with, I have even had a Bailey-fix already this week with another coming soon!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful life as well!! Be grateful for what you have!!! There is ALWAYS something to be glad about!!!

Letting Go

Letting go is one of the most difficult things we have to do in our lives.
It’s hard and sometimes it hurts.
Often, we realize that the “worry” of letting go is far worse than the actual letting go.
We stress so much about the finality of it all. Letting something or someone go, can be a necessity to protect your heart.
Your heart is yours to give and to protect. If your heart is hurting, take a look at the cause and see if you need to let something or someone go.

Calm

Good Morning!  I hope you have a great day!

Hopefully some time today we will get some rain. 

I like the rain, it’s like the universe’s way of clean things up!!  

Do your best today and no matter what is thrown your way, keep calm!!!
