This I’ve Learned

It’s tough out there—for everyone. Perhaps this is a “heads up” time to evaluate our life. Are we who we want to be? Are the grudges we carry keeping us from being happy? What do we need to do to be sure we will spend our eternity in heaven?  Let’s keep faith and learn from this experience.  Often one must go through the darkness to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Once time is gone, it’s gone forever. Don’t waste it.
Smile when your hair doesn’t look good, people will look at your face and not your hair.

Add to fruit juice for a healthful and inexpensive beverage.
Pour over rusty nuts and bolts to loosen them.
Clean porcelain fixtures by pouring club soda over them. No soap or rinsing is necessary and won’t mar the finish.

You get up to answer the phone and find out it’s on the TV.
Everyone reminds you of someone you once knew.

Joyce had hay fever.  She could never be without a Kleenex. She wore a low- cut cocktail dress to a dinner party. Since the dress didn’t have pockets, she stuffed two Kleenexes in her bosom. She was very discreet when she reached for the first Kleenex. Later, she needed the second. Again, Joyce was discreet in reaching for a Kleenex.  She fumbled with both hands when she couldn’t find it. Her face turned red when she looked up and noticed others were watching.  “I know I had two when I came,” she blurted.

    Thank you for some helpful hints. Especially the one about smiling so my hair will not be noticed–this staying home is making me lazy about doing my hair everyday. Of course there is no one to look at me ! Thank you for a laugh with the “On the Lighter Side” piece. We all need a laugh in these difficult days. Stay busy and stay well my friend.

    Hi, Theresa. Bob and I are back in Brighton. We came back the tenth of March and have been self-housed ever since then. We did stop and pick up some groceries on the way which was an excellent idea. I was proud of you and the posting you are doing. I will try to follow your writing. I hope you are doing well. Bob and I are pretty bored here but Florida has its own problems. We keep in touch with Paul and his family and they are doing the same things that the rest of us are trying to do following the instructions on the TV. Take care and keep up the good work. Love to you and your family.

    Belated Thoughts for the Week 3/23. Your blog is really uplifting. It’s just what we need for the next few months. I’m determined to watch TV for no more than one hour a day. I have the music channel on the rest of the time. It put me in a calm mood.
    I’m happy for you that you are getting positive responses. At least you are not getting so many you wouldn’t have time to read them.

    Great stuff. Laughed out loud at “lighter side”

    Perfectly said. “Once time is gone; it’s gone forever. Don’t waste it.” I think of all this time we are home quarantined safe from the virus. The time is going by, but are we wasting it? Only each one of us can answer that question. I shall ponder on your quote. I also shall chuckle the next time I hide my tissues. Thank you.

    My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different page and thought I
    may as well check things out. I like what I see
    so now i’m following you. Look forward to exploring your web page again.

    Thanks for some other informative blog. Where else may I am getting that type
    of information written in such a perfect means?
    I have a venture that I’m simply now working on, and I’ve
    been at the glance out for such info.
