Thoughts to Share


I get sooo many emails requesting that I forward to everyone
I know. . .  Mostly that doesn't work for me and thus I don't do it.
Now and again there are those I feel are worthy of
saving and remembering.
Sooo . . . I'm keeping them  here.  If you want to read  . . .
fine & if you don't . . . well that's also fine.
Mostly I'm just doing it for me anyway!  LOL!


Let's Dance

READ THIS VERY SLOWLY... And think about it  . . .

Too many people put off something that brings them joy just because they haven't thought about it, don't have it on their schedule, didn't know it was coming or are too rigid to depart from their routine.

I got to thinking one day about all those women on the Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to cut back on calories. From then on, I've tried to be a little more flexible.  How many women out there will eat at home because their husband didn't suggest going out to dinner until after something had been thawed?
Does the word "refrigeration" mean nothing to you?

How often have your kids dropped in to talk and sat in silence
while you watched 'Jeopardy' on television?

I cannot count the times I called my sister and said
"How about going to lunch in a half hour?"
She would gasp and stammer, "I can't. I have clothes on the
line, my hair is dirty. I wish I had known yesterday, I had a late
breakfast,  it looks like rain." And my personal favorite: "It's Monday."
She died a few years ago. We never did have lunch together.

Because North Americans cram so much into their lives, we
tend to schedule our headaches. We live on a sparse diet
of promises we make to ourselves
when all the conditions are perfect!

We'll go back and visit the grandparents when we get Steve toilet-trained.   We'll entertain when we replace the living-room
carpet.  We'll go on a second honeymoon when we get two more
kids out of college. . . .

Life has a way of accelerating as we get older. The days get shorter,
and the list of promises to ourselves gets longer. One morning, we awaken, and all we have to show for our lives is a litany of
"I'm going to," "I plan on," and
"Someday, when things are settled down a bit."

When anyone calls my 'seize the moment' friend, she is open to adventure and available for trips. She keeps an open mind on new
ideas. Her enthusiasm for life is contagious. You talk with her for five minutes, and you're ready to trade your bad feet for a pair of
rollerblades and skip an elevator for a bungee cord.


My lips have not touched ice cream in 10 years. I love ice cream.
It's just that I might as well apply it directly to my stomach with
a spatula and eliminate the digestive process. The other day,
I stopped the car and bought a triple-decker.
If my car had hit an iceberg on the way home, I would have died happy.

Now ... go on and have a nice day. Do something you WANT to......not something on your SHOULD DO list. If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? AND why are you waiting?

Make sure you read this to the end; you will understand why
I sent this to you.

Have you ever watched kids playing on a merry go round or listened
to the rain lapping on the ground?  Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight or gazed at the sun into the fading night? Do you run through each day on the fly? When you ask "How are you?" do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed with the next hundred chores running through your head? Ever told your child, "We'll do it tomorrow."  And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch? Let a good friendship die? Just call to say "Hi"?

When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift....Thrown away....
Life is not a race. Take it slower.
Hear the music before the song is over.

To those I have sent this link to... I cherish our friendship
and appreciate all you do.
"Life may not be the party we hoped for... but
while we are here we might as well dance!
