ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
APRIL 30TH, 2010
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR SUNSHINE BOY!
May the dear Lord bless you today and always!
I do wish I was there celebrating this birthday. My Sunshine Boy is named so because of his very special smiles and laughter! I got a call yesterday evening from him so he could tell me he is now riding his bike without training wheels on it. Hurray!!
Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day
Quoted in P.S. I Love You
The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps
In order to be flexible, we need to allow the presence of God to work freely and completely in our lives.
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Fridays are usually pizza nights at my house but I'm not sure at all what will be on the menu here today. I thought it might be nice to share a summer time dessert with you all today. It's supposed to be near 80 degrees here today

35 NILLA Wafers, finely crushed (about 1-1/4 cups)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine, melted

2 pkg. (1 oz. each) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
3 cups cold milk
1/2 square BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, grated
MIX crumbs and margarine; press onto bottom of 13x9-inch dish. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Let us pray that we may always do to others as we would wish them to do to us.
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT's
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
Do not anticipate trouble or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
I'm at DS#6's house again today and watching our little Lucky guy. I've been so blessed this week to be able to enjoy all the smiles this little one gives to me. To hold a baby is pure Joy!
I'll probably leave this evening for home and then return here Sunday evening. DS#6 and his wife have an AP (American Press) Awards Dinner to attend this weekend. He has been nominated for an AP award for one of the graphics he did. He won an award last year and I'm sure he'll get another this year. He is very good at what he does.
A smile is a curve that sets everything straight
It is not by accident at all that I have grandchildren that just radiate with SMILES. Their parents do the same. Isn't it so very true that children learn what they see.
I also had a call from DS#2 the other day to let me know he is finally home from all his travels. He enjoyed a couple days off and then went back to work.
COUNTING THE DAYS
The world always looks brighter from behind a smile
53 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
A bit of love from someone near…
