Smiling Sarah

This wonderful photo was taken by my friend Mary
 who captured the essence of Sarah, a little bundle of joy.

Friday Funny

Just a line to say I am living
     That I am not among the dead
Though I am getting more forgetful
     And more mixed up in the head!

For sometimes I cannot remember
     When I stand at the foot of the stairs
If I must go up for something
     Or I have just come down from there!

And before the fridge so often
     My poor mind is filled with doubt
Have I just put food away - or
     Have I come to take some out!

And there is time when it is dark out
     With my night cap on my head
I do not know if I am retiring
     Or just getting out of bed.

So if it's my turn to write you
     There is no need in getting sore
I think that I have written
     And do not want to be a bore!

So remember - I do love you
     And I wish that you were here
But now it's nearly mail time
     So I must say "Goodbye dear".

There I stood beside the mailbox
     With a face so very red!
Instead of mailing your letter
     I had opened it instead!!!

Thought For Thursday - January

January is national Thank You Month.

Thank you to those of you who take the time to read the posts in this blog. I feel a lot better thinking I'm "talking" to someone else besides just myself.

In the wake of the holiday season writing thank you notes and sending them via snail mail is becoming a novel way of expressing our gratitude. How often do you say thank you during an average day? If you don't get out much, do you say thank you to your significant other, or family members? How about saying thank you to your dog, or cat? Do your kids say thank you to you for the things you do for them? If they aren't, it might be a good idea to check your own habits.
