Life's About Changing

Yep, here comes the New year full of many new beginnings and I am seriously ready for it! But then again life has it's nostalgic moments....and oh how I know how to wax nostalgia. Life is about changes good and bad and it is a part of our lives. And it always makes that Patty Loveless song run through me head.....

Through the back window of a '59 wagon
I watched my best friend Jamie slippin' further away
I kept on waving 'till I couldn't see her
And through my tears, I asked again why we couldn't stay
Mama whispered softly, Time will ease your pain
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same

And she said, How can I help you to say goodbye?
It's OK to hurt, and it's OK to cry
Come, let me hold you and I will try
How can I help you to say goodbye?

I Love Google

Google you have done it again! I love beyond love the fancy google homepage designs that celebrate everything from the Olympics to Dr. Seuss's birthday! And today was extra special....Lucille Ball's 100th Birthday!

I think Lucy and I have to be related somewhere back....but I think the truth is she was an amazing actress and I am a natural born klutz! I love Lucy was the greatest....Between Lucy, Ricky, Fred, and Ethel there was never a dull moment!

So happy birthday Lucy....there has yet to be another as great as you! I Love Lucy!

And may I suggest if you have never seen it... the 1968 version of  "Yours, Mine, and Ours" Starring Henry Fonda and Lucy! One of my faves! Go watch it tonight....and maybe eat cake....while I reminisce about Lucille Ball's amazing fashion sense!

Apple of my eye..........

This quote makes me feel normal....... misfit, troublemaker, and the hole peg thing....yeah I relate!!! This is the quote I had on my binders for a lot my later years in college.....for one it is advertising genius....for another it should be a Homeschooler anthem! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

You know you are a misfit tooooo.....but if we are both misfits...does that make us still misfits???

I will be pondering that for a while!


Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Sunday Afternoons

I love Sunday afternoons! They are for reflecting and refueling for the week. The Lord had it right when he rested on the seventh day. I needed to catch up on some rest and sit down with the dog doing nothing! But maybe working on this blog!

 Rest is good for the soul! So this Sunday I am remembering his promise that all things are made new!

"I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth." ~Genesis 9:13

And the song on my brain today is that wonderful JJ Heller song "Your Hands"....I love JJ Heller and her story about becoming an artist...all in God's plan!

Enjoy Friends and have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!
