I love dance and music

Beauty of dance and joy

Remember darlings what ever Fred Astaire could do
Ginger Rogers could also do but backwards and in high heels

Kim and Drew and their wedding dance in Costa Rica

Mother Son dance  to All you Need is Love at my Son's request
I love this

Beautiful creations from my dear friend Dani
verse below was also from her
as seen posted on Facebook.
I love you Dani

Grandma's book of valentines
Rekindles memory's flame,
Of days when she was just a girl
And life a happy game.

Each lace-edged card a getting bears
From friends of long ago,
Girls in gingham dresses
And that “special” Sunday beau.

It brings a twinkle to her eye,
Dissolving lines of age,
As we sit in the lamplight
And turn each well worn page.

It makes me kind of wonder
If perhaps some distant day,
A grandchild shall sit at my side
And leaf each page this way.

‘Cause I could sit for hours,
There at my grandma's knee,
And listen to the stories
That the valentines set free.

A book of antique valentines
That reaches black in time
To tell the tales of yesteryear
In illustrated rhyme.
~Shirley Sallay, Valentine Memories

Beautiful creation from my dear friend Shelley

I have such wonderful and talented friends
Love you sweet Shelley

Day Brighteners

¸.• * • . ❥
Laugh and love with all your might.
Kiss and hug and snuggle tight.
Let go of sadness and regret.
Say "I love you" every chance you get.

Treasure those who love you dearly
and walk beside you always on your journey of life

Hearts my Sister had given me

Thoughts of springtime and car rides

 Forever in my heart

Because baby it's you

My dear friend Judy and sweet Sister Debbie and me
the beauty of Three

Always sparkle and shine

I love pansies I cannot wait to buy some for our balcony

The greatest thing you will ever learn 
is just to love and be loved in return♥

Happy Tuesday

“Life is a question of nerves, and fibres, and slowly built-up cells in which thought hides itself and passion has its dreams. You may fancy yourself safe and think yourself strong. But a chance tone of colour in a room or a morning sky, a particular perfume that you had once loved and that brings subtle memories with it, a line from a forgotten poem that you had come across again, a cadence from a piece of music that you had ceased to play... I tell you, that it is on things like these that our lives depend. ”

― Oscar WildeThe Picture of Dorian Gray

Thanks my lovely cousin Cheryl for always sending so much joy
and love into my world.
I love you with all my heart♥

One drop of love surpasses time and distance, and goes far deeper than an ocean of will or reason. -Kathy Loun Stilley

What Life is All About

What Life is All About

Life isn't about keeping score.
It's not about how many friends you have.
Or how accepted you are.

Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you are alone.
It isn't about who you're dating, who you used to date, 
or how many people you've dated, or if you haven't been with anyone at all.
It isn't about who you have kissed. It's not about sex.

It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have,
or what kind of car you drive, or where you are sent to school.
It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are, or what clothes you wear, 
what shoes you have on, or what kind of music you listen to.
It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown.
Or if your skin is too light or too dark.

Not about what grades you get, how smart you are, 
how smart everybody else thinks you are,
or how smart standardized tests say you are.
It's not about what clubs you're in or how good you are at "your" sport.

It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper 
and seeing you will "accept the written you."

But, life is about who you love and who you hurt.
It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully.
It's about keeping or betraying trust.
It's about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon.
It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.

About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.
It's about what judgments you pass and why.
And who your judgments are spread to.
It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention.
It's about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.
It's about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow, and spreading it.

But most of all, it's about using your life to touch or poison other people's hearts 
in such a way that could have never occurred alone.

Only you choose the way those hearts are affected, 
and those choices are what life's all about.

Happy Saturday

"How far you go in life depends 
on your being tender with the young, 
compassionate with the aged, 
sympathetic with the striving and 
tolerant of the weak and strong. 
Because someday in your life
you will have been all of these." ~George Washington Carver

Every day is a reason to celebrate and share
