For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Memorial Day

How ALL phones SHOULD be answered!

GOOD MORNING, WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , a Christian nation of the free and the home of the brave.

How may I help you?

Press '1' for English.

Press '2' to disconnect until you learn to speak English.

And remember only two defining forces have ever Offered to die for you, Jesus Christ And the American Soldier.

One died for your soul, The other for your freedom.

Happy Memorial Day.

Happy Birthday Walt Whitman and Norman Vincent Peale

"I give you my love more precious than money;
I give you myself before preaching or law.
Will you give me yourself?
Will you come travel with me?
Shall we stick by each other as long as we live?"
~ Walt Whitman

"Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;

you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Walt Whitman

"Enthusiasm is one of life's greatest qualities, but it must be practiced to become a dominant factor in one's life...
There is real magic in enthusiasm.
It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment."
~ Norman Vincent Peale

Good Morning, Sandie! Hope your Memorial Day is sooooo wonderful. I absolutely love Norman Vincent Peale. He has been a life role model for many, many years. I have the Power of Positive Thinking nearby at all times. Thanks for your post and friendship. Sincerely, Susan

Hey Sandie!

You are so right! That is how all phones should be answered! Plus I'm tired of trying to find information on bottles that have 3 and 4 different languages on them! And don't even get me started on the instructions that come with our products! I don't want to have to search for my language in those books! I have a book that came with my pressure cooker that half of it is in English and the other half is in another language. I should just rip it in half. I don't need the other side! I speak English!

Hope you have a Wonderful Memorial Day!

I like how the phones should be answered, Sandie. I would be satisfied to get someone that actually talks and not an automated computer voice. thanking God for people who fight for our country and protect our freedom

hope it was a good one for you and your family :)
