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

Saturday Saga and the Power of words and the Power of Silence.

"You can hit me and I won't think much of it, but you can say something and hurt me very much." ~ Floyd Patterson Called a "good guy in the bad world of boxing" by the New York Times, heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson (1935-2006) was born in Waco, North Carolina. The third of 11 children, he took up boxing at the age 14."It's easy to do anything in victory. It's in defeat that a man reveals himself," he once said.

"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. -Mother Teresa"

This is what I try to live and how I try to teach - but I have to admit it is hard and sometimes I fail.

On Saturdays a few weeks ago we decided to do family trips like when our kids were little. We can't do them on Sundays as GS sees his dad on Sundays. Last weeks trip was to FRESH FOODS and GIGI's CUPCAKES! I didn't buy everything I took pictures of but for me it is eye candy - thank you Nikki for that term - I told you I would steal it.


I bought one of these - I want to start a bottle bush?


And yes - we did succumb.

Words can hurt - at least they can me. They hurt more then being hit physically I believe.

Pictures - eye candy God gives us to enjoy - can make you feel good.
