 As I sat waiting for the school bell to ring signaling days end,
passing the time until 3 pairs of feet ran to my car,
I thumbed through a decorating catalog that came in the mail.
My eyes were drawn to a "word sign"
...and the words spoke to my heart.


Laugh when you can
Apologize when you should
and let go of what you can't change.
Kiss slowly
Forgive quickly
Play hard
Take chances
Life is too short
To be anything but happy!


It's been a long, hard summer
and I am ready for the coolness & colors of autumn
to sweep my way.

May the rest of this year find us happy!

Those are great words to live by, Sheila. We've been having some nice fall days this week. It's so good to have cooler weather! I hope the rest of the year is happy, too. Happy Autumn to you!!
