Happy 20th Birthday Emma!
Make a Wish!
A birthday gift for you: Your favorite family picture!
I can see why it is your favorite :o)
We love you very much, Em!
I made a really delicious sandwich yesterday.
Whole wheat bread.
A little whipped cream cheese with green onions in it.
Tomato with salt and pepper on it.
I had forgotten how wonderful alfalfa sprouts are on sandwiches.
This is a wonderful, healthy sandwich.
I love it!
I never heard my mother say a negative, rude word about a friend or neighbor or brother or sister.
She lived by the old wise saying, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."
I do not live this as well as she did. But, staying kind and positive on the blog, at a message board, or in real life has earned it's reward.
In five plus years, I can count the number of unkind comments on one hand.
I think I have deleted only four comments in all those years.
That is pretty amazing.
I am thankful for those of you who take the time to share a wise word, a funny story, a commonality, or a kind note.
Because of all of you, I exist in a sweet little bubble of love here at the blog.
And that's just the way I like it :o)
Encourage one another,
