My Wish

Life can change with every breath we take.In an instant,nothing is the same.Loved ones die.Homes are lost.Pride is gone.As I watch the news and see so much bad,I can't help but think how disappointed God must be.This can't be the world he set out to make.People killing other people,even their own children.I often wonder,how did it come to this?I wish I lived 100 years ago.Back when things were simple.Oh, how I envied Laura Ingles and her family.Thats where I belonged.Not in this time where you have to keep your kids with you at every second for fear you'll never see them again.This world is a scary place to live.My wish is that people hang on to who they are.To know the bad things,but only live for the good.To be thankful for everything we have.And for the things we don't.To smile at one person everyday.To know that miracles happen everywhere if we just know how to look for them.Miracles don't have to be life chaging things.For me,I have a miracle everytime my kids wake up in the mornings.
Don't let the ugliness of the world shut out all the good that is still here.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
-Emily Dickinson

I enjoy your blogs, I imagine that you did live 100 years ago probably as a school teacher in a one room school house. Which could also explain why you enjoy reading so much today. (Just a thought)
I would be interested in knowing some of the titles of the B&W movies you most enjoy, such as any movies with Gary Grant, Jimmy Stewart or Clark Gable in them. Do you feel they same about some of the old B&W tv shows. Hope to share more thoughts with you!

Reading is the fountain of wisdom!

It is still like the old days in much of the midwest. Families actually spend time together, sincerely care for each other's interests, and teach respect of others.

It doesn't matter so much what time you live in as much as who you share that time with. Life can be how you choose to view it. There is an old story, I don't remember exactly how it goes but it is something like this; An old timer was sitting on a bench outside the general store and a man who recently moved to this town walked up and asked him how the people were in this town. The old man asked him "how were the people in the town you came from?" The man answered "They were awful, it was a terrible place, I was always getting into arguments." The old man said "They are the same here". Later, another man new to the town asked the old man the same question and the old man responded the same "How were the people in the town you came from?" This man responded " they were great, it was a wonderful town!" The old man said "they are the same here"!
The moral of the story is that if you look for the negative that is what you will find, If you look for the positive then that is what you will find.
