Friends...

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Make new friends, but keep the old;
Those are silver, these are gold.
New-made friendships, like new wine,
Age will mellow and refine.
Friendships that have stood the test -
Time and change - are surely best;
Brow may wrinkle, hair grow gray,
Friendship never knows decay.
For 'mid old friends, tried and true,
Once more we our youth renew.
But old friends, alas! may die,
New friends must their place supply.
Cherish friendship in your breast-
New is good, but old is best;
Make new friends, but keep the old;
Those are silver, these are gold.
Joseph Parry

Mother Teresa

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
Mother Teresa

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me." ~Erma Bombeck

Finding the good...

Sunday, March 04, 2012

If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.

New Grandson...

Saturday, March 03, 2012

I'm proud to announce the arrival of our fifth grandchild, and fourth grandson, Anderson Wallace Shafer! He made his grand entrance at 3:18AM today, 3/3/12, weighing in at 8lbs 8oz and 20.5 inches in length! He is absolutely adorable!

I can't believe how much pure joy being a grandma to 5 year old Bryson, 4 year old Layton, 3 year old Bennett, 2 year old Jillian and newborn Anderson brings to my life!!!!

Everyone have a wonderful week-end! I'm going to get some rest so I can spend more time holding our newest arrival!!
