"If you woke up this morning, it's time to celebrate!"

"A mind is a fire to be kindled, not a vessel to be filled.”
~ Plutarch (46-137), historian, biographer, essayist

My mind certainly needs some kindling!
We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
~ William Shakespeare

"Baby it's cold outside"
~ Dean Martin

It was certainly cold here when I got up this morning.
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces up, snow is exhilarating;
there is no such thing as bad weather just different kinds of good weather.
~ John Ruskin
21st November
"There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us. ‘Tis good to give a stranger a meal, or a night’s lodging. ‘Tis better to be hospitable to his good meaning and thought, and give courage to a companion. We must be as courteous to a man as we are to a picture, which we are willing to give the advantage of a good light. ”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82), philosopher, poet, essayist

Anna took this portrait of me at our 365 retreat. She managed to smooth out the wrinkles and do some beautifying. Thankyou Anna
A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.

Live your life from your heart. Share from your heart. And your story will touch and heal people's souls."
~ Melody Beattie; author, journalist.

I like to think I live my life from the heart.
“Sharing is loving.”
There is no joy in possession without sharing.
~ Erasmo da Rotterdam
19th November
"Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart.”
~ Henry Clay (1777-1852), politician and orator

There is always a warm welcome at our front door.
“All doors open to courtesy”
~ Thomas Fuller
18th November
"Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses."
~ Ann Landers (1918-2002); advice columnist

Over 40 years into our life together and still counting.
“If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”
~ Winnie the Pooh
