This I’ve Learned

BLOG May 13, 2024

I WAS THINKING…
about my mom on Mother’s Day. She was Mama to her eleven children. She was loved by everyone who knew her. Mama’s faith and love was an inspiration to her large family. Actually, large is an understatement. From eleven children and 39 grand-children, there about 155 great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. I know Mom is in heaven watching over all of us. Gosh, I just realize how many times I’m an aunt. Not only an aunt, but a great aunt and a great, great aunt. All of a sudden, I feel really old. That’s okay, it’s a feel-good old.

HOW MOTHER’S DAY STARTED
Anna M. Jarvis, born in 1864 in Webster, West Virginia, is recognized as the driving force behind Mother’s Day. Following her mother’s passing, Jarvis announced her intention to establish a day to honor mothers. On the third anniversary of her mother’s death a celebration of mothers took place at the Wanamaker Store Auditorium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The observance gained official recognition in 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating the second Sunday of May as a day to express reverence for the mothers of the nation.

You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.

AN IDEA IF YOUR DOG GOES MISSING
(Taken from Facebook) Works????
A dog went missing. The owner was advised to put an item of his clothing down near the area it was last seen (for the scent). Although many searched, the dog was not found. The next morning the dog was sitting on the coat that was left.

VINEGAR STORAGE
(Taken from Haley’s Hints)
Because of its acidic properties, never store vinegar, or foods pickled with vinegar, in containers made of brass, copper, iron or tin. It’s safest to use glass containers.

THIIS I’VE LEARNED
Sometimes we would like to do more volunteer work but our busy schedule says no. There are many other simple ways we can reach out to other in our daily life. Just a smile or saying hello to a stranger, giving a car the right of way, thanking a salesclerk, holding a door open, etc. Think about it!
