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
as posted on Facebook

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

Always sparkle and shine

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

The greatest thing you will ever learn

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

☆.´ `. ღ ❣•*¨*•.¸¸(͡๏̯͡๏)¸¸.•*¨*•❣
(͡๏̯͡๏)(͡๏̯͡๏)  SUNDAY 
( , , )( , , ) ★ BLESSINGS ☆

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

We are going through life

We are going through life
with just one purpose:
to make all the wonderful things
- love, truth, compassion, joy - blossom.

Oh sweet love you bring me so much joy with your happiness
love and laughter

“Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.”
~MFK Fisher
I am defined by my family
Family faces are truly magic mirrors for me..............
I treasure every golden moment I can spend with those I love
With every moment shared an absolute blessing♥

May we get to share many more meals together through our lives
I cannot wait to be stepping into spring

The Suitcase...
A man died, when he realized it,
he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in His hand.
God said: "Alright Son, it's time to go." 
Surprised, the man responded: "Now..? So soon..? I had a lot of plans..."
"I am sorry but it's time to go."
The man asked: "What do you have in that suitcase?"
God answered: "Your belongings."
"My belongings..? You mean my things, My clothes, My money..?"
God answered: "Those things were not yours they belonged to the earth."
"Is it my memories..?" the man asked.
God answered: "Those never belonged to you they belonged to Time."
"Is it my talents..?"
God answered: "Those were never yours they belonged to the circumstances."
"Is it my friends and family..?"
God answered: "I'm sorry, they were never yours, they belonged to the path."
"Is it my wife and son...?"
God answered: "They were never yours they belonged to your heart."
"Is it my body..?"
God answered: "That was never yours it belonged to the dust."
"Is it my soul..?"
God answered: "No, that is Mine."
Full of fear, the man took the suitcase from God and opened it just to find out the suitcase was empty.
With a tear coming down his cheek the man said: "I never had anything..???"
God answered:"That is correct, every moment you lived were only yours."
Life is just a moment.
A moment that belongs to you.
For this reason enjoy this time while you have it.
Don't let anything that you think you own stop you from doing so.
Live Now. Live your life.
Don't forget to be happy, that is the only thing that matters.
Material things and everything else that you fought for stay here.
Pretty music

Fairy Tales

“And though the shadow of a sigh
May tremble through the story,
For "happy summer days" gone by,
And vanish'd summer glory--
It shall not touch with breath of bale,
The pleasance of our fairy-tale.” ~ Lewis Carrroll
Artist~Charlotte Bird

Happy Monday

"The time is always right to do the right thing”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.

We went to see the movie Selma yesterday.  

It leaves you with many emotions.  Never take your freedom or your right to choose for granted.

An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.
May you be open to each thread that comes into your life ~
the golden ones and the coarse ones ~
and may you weave them
into a brilliant and beautiful life.
~Ancient Chinese Belief~
I love Winnie the Pooh and these wonderful quotes
