One Quiet Moment

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

Sometimes We Parents Do Just the Right Thing!!

 A family in New York began visiting shelters to look for the perfect pup.
After a few week of searching local shelters, they found a puppy that they fell in love with -- Theo.
He craved human friendship and attention. Three days after coming home with them, he joined their son, Beau, for his daily nap.
Beau's mother began taking "nap" pictures and now they are warming hearts around the world.
Here are a few that I wanted to share with you!!

One Quiet Moment

For age is opportunity no less than youth itself, though in another dress, and as the evening twilight fades away, the sky is filled with stars, invisible by day. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Some Humor, Some Wisdom and Some Beauty for the Day!!

To succeed in life you need three things. A wishbone a backbone and a funny bone. -Reba McEntire

Put your future in good hands - your own.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone see it -Confucius

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on.

-Robert Frost

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. -Albert Camus
And this one is my favorite and I send it to all of you today!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
