All I Need to Know, I Learned from the Easter Bunny

Saturday, April 19, 2014


Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.

There's no such thing as too much candy.

All work and no play can make you a basket case.

A cute tail attracts a lot of attention.

Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.

Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.

Some body parts should be floppy.

Keep your paws off of other people's jelly beans.

Good things come in small, sugar coated packages.

The grass is always greener in someone else's basket.

To show your true colors, you have to come out of the shell.

The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.

May the joy of the season fill your heart.

AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU!

Happy Easter!

On Growing Older......

Tuesday, April 15, 2014


First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it's such a nice change from being young.

Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable and relaxed.

Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.

And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old.

The Wedding

Friday, March 28, 2014


We arrived about 10 am Fri morning and that meant we were in time to help the kids decorate the hall where the reception would be held. It is normally a bingo hall so had to take down some of the tables and remove lots of chairs!

Tables being decorated

Cake table

The bride (our granddaughter), groom and her parents (my son)

DH & I with the bride, groom and her parents

Cutting the cake

DH & I at the reception

Some of the beautiful blooming trees we saw on our trip up and back.
These were lining the driveway to a home and I just had to pull over and
take a picture.

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING

Wednesday, March 26, 2014


A message every adult should read because children
Are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my
First painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately
Wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed the
Birds in winter, and I learned that it was good to be kind
To animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my
Favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little
Things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a
Prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could always
Talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make a
Meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I
Learned that we all have to help take care of each other.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care
Of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have
To take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you
Handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't
Feel good, and I learned that I would have to be
Responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hold
The door open for others and heard 'thank you' and
'you're welcome', and I learned respect for others.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come
From your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things
Hurt, but it's all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you
Cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be..

When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of
life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and
Productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you and
Wanted to say, Thanks for all the things I saw when
You thought I wasn't looking.'

I AM POSTING THIS FOR ALL OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW
WHO DO SO MUCH FOR OTHERS,
BUT THINK THAT NO ONE EVER SEES.
LITTLE EYES SEE A LOT ..


Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend)
Influences the life of a child.

  This is certainly powerful--
And on the flip side, a warning----- children can "learn" the bad traits from us when we think that they are not looking! Therefore, guard against anger, resentment, selfishness, laziness, etc-- that we do not want our children to imitate.
Thank you-- !
