Happy Saturday

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” ~Epictetus

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
~Denis Waitley

"you are the finest, loveliest, tenderest,
and most beautiful person I have ever known-
and even that
is an understatement."
F. Scott Fitzgerald

“You can become blind 
by seeing each day as a similar one.
Each day is a different one,
each day brings a miracle of its own.
It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”
-- Paulo Coelho



Grandma hold me a little longer
Rock me a little more
Tell me another story 
You have only told me four
Let me sleep upon your shoulder
I love your happy smile
I'll always love you Grandma
So stay with me awhile


Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
~Ashley Smith

“There is a comfort in the strength of love; ‘Twill make a thing endurable, which else would overset the brain, or break the heart.” ~William Wordsworth


Thank you God for these days of the summer of 2014
times shared in love with my beautiful family♥
For all those days. 
For this joy. 
For this life. 
For that beautiful blessing Logan and his loving parents
How blessed am I.

If we want to keep the blessings 
of life coming to us,
We have to learn to be grateful
for whatever is given.” 
~ Harold Klemp

I don't know what it is about you
that closes and opens, 
only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes, 
is deeper than all roses.

I love this song

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 and 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix (the regular or low-fat versions will both work)
3/4 cup water
15 oz. pizza sauce (either homemade OR we like Don Pepino)
2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese
your favorite pizza toppings (we just used pepperoni this time)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dry basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon dry oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper or red pepper flakes
1.) Coat the bottom of a 6 quart Crock Pot/slow cooker (and about one inch up the sides) with the olive oil.
2.) Spread 1/4 of the sauce in the bottom of the Crock Pot.
3.) In a medium mixing bowl, mix the Bisquick and water until thoroughly combined. Spread this dough on top of the sauce, evenly, so it almost reaches the sides of the crock. Cover the dough with the remaining sauce so it completely coated.
4.) Top with the cheeses, toppings and seasonings.
5.) Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.
6.) Cut into slices, plate and serve.

Beautiful recipe from Chin Deep thank you so very much.

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
