This I’ve Learned

about the beautiful floats in the recent Rose Bowl Parade. I can’t even imagine what it took to have it so organized. Every year I’m overwhelmed and find it hard to believe the floats are actually made-up of all living material such as grass, seeds, leaves and mostly flowers.  But seeing is believing. I have a fond memory of once sitting in the stands and being only a few feet to see and smell the splendor as the floats paraded pass.
Millions of people were tuned in to enjoy this parade. For a couple hours or so, all these people were enjoying fun together, all at the same time, without an issue of race, politics or gender. Now that was a good way to start the new year.

You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you.” —Eckhart Tolle
The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot. —Michael Altshuler
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.Albert Einstein
Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go. They merely determine where you start. —Nido Qubein

you forget someone’s name 10 seconds after they tell you.
you buy produce and throw it away two weeks later.
you dig through the trash for the food box because you already forgot the directions.

A pinch of sugar makes cooked tomato recipes less bitter and brings out flavor.
Need just a few broccolis or cauliflower florets for recipe, buy them from the supermarket salad. Saves waste and preparation time.
Brown sugar becomes hard? Add a soft piece of bread in plastic bag to soften.
Revitalize rubbery celery by cutting into stalks, then store in container with enough water to cover.

Kind words are short, but their echoes are endless.
Aways sandwich criticism between two layers of praise.
