From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 08/16/15:
|“You may have heard the expression 'mind over matter.' That’s what I would like to talk about—but phrase it a little differently: 'spirit over body.' That is self-mastery.”|
Thanks so much, Susan!
From Catherine Slusser Hudson ('64) of VA - 08/16/16:
|AMEN! Thank you, Catherine!|
From My Friend, Tina, of SC - 08/15/15 - "Pumpkin Planter":
OOOH! Thank you, Tina! I like this so very, very much! In fact, I want one for myself. Now. I think I'd like several varieties of marigolds in mine, rather than chrysanthemums. Did I mention now? 'Cause that's like a key word, ya know.
“Blood may be thicker than water, but it's certainly not as thick as
ketchup. Nor does it go as well with French fries.”

Words and Music by
(11 May 1888 - 22 Sept 1989)
I was blue, just as blue as I could be
Ev'ry day was a cloudy day for me
Then good luck came a-knocking at my door
Skies were gray but they're not gray anymore
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see
Singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds
All day long
Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on
I should care if the wind blows east or west
I should fret if the worst looks like the best
I should mind if they say it cant be true
I should smile, that's exactly what I do
