Hi Everyone ~~ Nice to be back with you again and I hope you like the article below. I plan to post a recipe next time for the Dumplings, I mentioned in the last post.
Thanks for all your comments about it sounding good etc.
<><><><> I Wish I Had <><><><>
I wish I had a foot large enough to stamp out injustice;
A fist big enough to knock out my own self-opinion;
And a heart big enough to accept true Judgement;
A mind broad enough to accept man as he is …..
But a desire to show him a better way.
A tolerant sympathy for the narrow-minded;
Clear vision to see my own short-comings;
And a simple, unquestioning faith in the unknown.
A heart strong enough to take life as it comes
And a determination to stick to what is right.
Eyes to see the road to self-improvement;
Two arms strong enough to hold many sorrows;
And an understanding of life’s disappointments
To hold my ideals high enough to keep me humble
And strong enough to keep me true.
I am sure you have all seen the Adoption Prayer before, but it is very meaningful to a lot of us.
Not flesh of my flesh,
Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own ….
Never forget, for a single minute.
You did not grow under my heart……
But in it !!

<><><><> QUOTE OF THE WEEK <><><><>
There will be times when aspects of your life appear to run off the rails. Mistakes, calamities, and transgressions.
But the beauty of life is that there is always another chance; you can make a fresh start any moment you choose.
As Mary Pickford once said, “This thing we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down.”
An uncle used to tell me “It’s not how you fall, but how you get up.” Same thing.
Bye for now. Jokes next time. <><>
