Do you find yourself yearning for the simpler, slower way of life from days gone by? Do you prefer listening to birds chirping or an IPOD? Do you find yourself wishing for a time when we moved at a slower pace, when politeness and civility were the norm? Did you love The Waltons, Andy and Aunt Bee, Charlie Brown and Lucy? Join with me then and share your thoughts with others who yearn for gentler times in this fast paced world we live in.

Happy Mothers Day
She wasn't perfect. She had a hard childhood filled with illness and an overbearing father, but she did the best she could when it came to mothering us. I often think in a different place and time, she could have been so much more - she could have let her talents shine. She was artistic and a fantastic cook. When I needed a costume for the various plays I was in during my school years, she came up with the most amazing ideas like the time I played Mrs. Santa Clause in 5th Grade. I had a pretty red " Granny Dress" that was popular in the 60's that served well for Mrs. Santa, complete with a ruffled apron borrowed from Mom. I had the rose colored Granny glasses fashionable at that time that were perfect. I just needed snowy white hair. Mom took a plastic wig of mine, covered it with fluffy cotton balls and like magic, I was transformed into a kindly old lady. I like to think I got my creativity from her. Miss you mom.
