From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 03/29/15:
 

“Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other.”

- Marvin J. Ashton
(06 May 1915  - 25 Feb 1994)

From My Friend, LaMerle, of VA - 03/29/15:

BONUS SWEET NOTHING CROCHET PATTERN:

Two-Inch Flower Crochet Patterns - "This flower is one of my favorite designs included on our list of easy crochet flower patterns. It's a sweet nothing of a little flower that's quick to crochet. My sample flower measures a little less than two inches, and it's only two rounds. Of course, if you crochet this pattern, your flower may turn out to be a different size, depending on the materials you use. I used a baby yarn to crochet my sample flower. If you'd like your flower to be bigger, you can use a thicker yarn. If you want a really tiny flower, use crochet thread or embroidery floss to make a miniature version."


BONUS SWEET NOTHINGS RECIPES:

Sweet Nothings in the Kitchen

A lady walked into a boutique and asked the sales lady, "May I try on that cute dress in the window?"

Sweet Nothin's

Written by Dub Allbritten and Ronnie Self (05 July 1938 – 28 Aug1981)

Recorded by Brenda Lee (b. 11 Dec 1944), 1959


(Whispering) Uh Huh Honey
(Whispering) Alright

My baby whispers in my ear
Ummm, Sweet Nothin's
He knows the things I like to hear
Ummm, Sweet Nothin's
Things he wouldn't tell
Nobody else
Secret baby
I keep them to myself
Sweet Nothin's
Ummm, Sweet Nothin's

We walk along hand in hand
Ummm, Sweet Nothin's
Yeah, we both understand
Ummm Sweet Nothin's
Sittin' in the classroom trying to read my book
My baby give me that special look
Sweet Nothin's
Ummm, Sweet Nothin's

[Instrumental Interlude]

Ah, sittin on my front porch
Ummm, Sweet Nothin's
Well, do I love you, of course
Ummm, Sweet Nothin's
Mama turned on the front porch light
Sayin' "Come here darlin' that' enough for tonight"
Sweet Nothin's
Ummm, Sweet Nothin's
Sweet Nothin's
