“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.” – Bruce Lee The happiest people in the world are flexible. They do not have rigid beliefs or try to control and manipulate their surroundings to make them happy. They are okay with how things […]
My beautiful, rustic Apple plum tart was just delicious. It’s just like an apple pie, but with plums. Jim is teaching me to bake. So, I came up with a recipe with apples and plums. We found all these in the church yard today. The apples just fell from the apple tree all by themselfs.I […]
“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” -Robert Fulghum All I Really Need to Know I Learned […]
You speak words of kindness, With eyes that seek out the good, It’s food for the hungry, Walking with the knowledge That we’ll never walk alone; It’s our hope for the future. It’s the loving care you show me That for me is knowing That we will never become Obsolete.
