I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July. Mine was pretty relaxing. Grandma and grandpa came over and we barbequed for lunch and hung out. I wanted to go swimming but it was too cold. I even showed them how I sit up all by myself. Later on we went over to my cousins house and watched them and the neighbors set off fireworks. I wasn't for sure how I would handle it but I did great. I loved watching all the fireworks light up and I didn't even get scared when they popped. I jumped a few times but never got upset. I even got to participate with the sparklers. I wasn't too sure of them though. Mom let me hold one and swing it around, but I preferred to just sit back and watch. It was a lot of fun and can't wait until next year.
"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you are alive you have got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive." ~Mel Brooks
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
We learn as much from sorrow as from joy, as much from illness as from health, from handicap as from advantage and indeed perhaps more. - Pearl S. Buck
There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need money. Love like you've never been hurt, and dance like no one's watching.
Love makes each day a joy, and each moment a memory.
"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence . . . 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
One day at a time is enough...don't look back and grieve the past, it's gone...don't be troubled about the future, it has not come yet...live in the present and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.
