When all else fails...

Hello everyone. 
I have a folder on my laptop where I save pictures, quotes, sayings, etc. I thought I would share a few with you today. I hope you find one or two that speak to you or your sense of humor. (most are from Pinterest)

Most of you know that we have a senior golden retriever. Mikey is the best darn therapist there is. He has been my sidekick through various trials and tribulations. His first example of being a therapy dog (not officially, but to our family) was the time I locked myself out of our house on the farm. I am still not sure I know how I did that. I tried all of the doors and they were all locked. The key was not in the "secret" place. I was a few fields away from my nearest neighbor.  I called (early cell phone) either my hubby or my father for their key...not sure which one. I was so bummed that I just started crying. That little puppy did not know what tears were for...but he sensed I needed a hug. He was right. So...when all else fails, hug the dog!

I think more people than not can identify with this one. How many of you can still wear the earrings you wore in high school. I am expecting a huge YEAH!
I won't ask how many of you can still wear the same jeans that you wore in high school. If you can...I do not want to know about it. ha! After two children, a bummed thyroid, and early hormone trouble, figure changed. I am working on it. I have lost several pounds over the last several months. It is slow. And it is hard. Can I hear another YEAH! So, If you can still wear the same size earrings that you wore in high school...jump up and celebrate that victory! 

This one quote is one of my favorites. As women, we are a sisterhood of sorts. I know many good women. I will not list names, but it would be a long list. I try to be a good woman too. And I do believe that I raised a good woman (daughter.) She is strong, and smart, and has a good heart. We must support all good women and help the others become good women. (sorry for the distortion of the text...from enlarging.)

I believe that everyone has a story! And, you are living it.  I do not care where you live, what you do, or how you do it....YOU have a story. You may not think that your life is exiting, or that you would want to tell anyone about your life. But, believe me...I have learned that there is a story about, and in, each and every one of us. Living in rural Kentucky one can see disadvantaged folks all over. I am always wondering...what is their story?What is her story? There are wonderful musicians, singers, cooks, farmers, craftsmen, mothers, grandmothers, etc. Everyone has a deeper story. What is your story? Step back for a minute and figure out what your story is or will be. Or maybe your story is still being created. I challenge you to think about it from time to time. 

 This is the first little prayer that I taught my preschool aged daughter....way way back. In fact, she is the one who sent this to me. When I read this I think of those nights when I would read a story, tuck in my baby girl, and we would say this together, then kiss goodnight. 

I will leave you with this one. 
All the best people are entirely bonkers! 
Remember this the next time you go bonkers.

Thanks for visiting.

note: I do not own any of these images. I have borrowed them from Pinterest to share with you.
