W Is For Words

I wish I had a wagon full of toys. Sadly, I grew up though. 
In growing up, you mature, and really learn to value more than toys. You regard your family and friends in a different way, and life has more meaning all of a sudden.
While visiting my Auntie Beryl, whom you've heard a lot about recently, I wasn't surprised to find these on the walls of the senior building.
I couldn't help myself. I stopped outside this lady's door where this was on the wall in the hall. The meaning behind this powerful message stopped me in my tracks. It is so true, and I got caught up in thinking about some of those moments that took my breath away. Like having my children, or when I got engaged. Moments that would be really hard to forget.
Then this one was further down the hall. It stopped me dead too.
This one is the truest of all. It's not about what you get but what you give. If I have learned anything, it's the power of giving. There is a self-gratifying feeling that comes when you help someone with no return. 

Is there an adage that you live by? Do share.

  1. I don't know if I have an adage, but I do have certain values that are important to me, family, friends, honesty and love are what I value above all...

  3. I don't think, I have an adage.I couldn't agree more with the power of giving and help someone without expecting something in return.

  8. We are responsible for our own happiness. No one can do it for us.

    Sometimes when I'm feeling overwhelmed I remember what my oldest son told me when his brother was going through cancer treatment. "Mom, it is what it is...now deal with it." Of course, he was correct. The situation was out of my control. Nothing was to be gained by asking why. So, I had Ms. Jenny paint those words for me and I hung them on the wall as a constant reminder.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
