Hello my Friends ~~ And what great friends you are !!
I feel overwhelmed with your kind and sympathetic
words and I thank you most sincerely.
I learnt today that Kath enjoyed their usual Sunday roast
dinner and apple pie, and very soon after had a heart attack,
so it was very sudden and unexpected, but better for Kath.
Now to find something of interest to post.
<><><> A Poem called “It Shows In Your Face.” <><><>
You don’t have to tell how you live each day,
You don’t have to say if you work or play;
A tried, true barometer serves in place ---
However you live, it will show in your face.
The false, the deceit, that you bear in your heart,
Will not stay inside where it first got the start,
For sinew and blood are thin veils of lace ---
What you wear in your heart, you wear in your face.
If your life is unselfish, if for others you live,
For not what you get, but how much you give;
If you live close to God in His infinite grace ---
You don’t have to tell it – it shows in your face.

And with joy, through all your lifetime,
Count your age by friends, not years.

they connect and they end up leaving together.
They get back to his apartment and she notices that
his bedroom is completely packed with sweet cuddly
teddy bears. Hundreds of cute little bears on a bottom
shelf all the way along the floor. Cuddly medium sized
ones on a shelf a little higher, and huge enormous bears
on the top shelf along the wall.
The woman is surprised that this hunky guy would have
a collection of teddy bears, but she decides not to
mention how impressed she is by his sensitive side.
Things progress and they get down to an intense night
Afterwards, lying side by side, the woman rolls over and
asks smiling, “Well, how was it?”
Macho man says; “ Help yourself to any prize from the
<><><> And now some quotes to finish with <><><>
We all have faults. It’s important to recognise your own,
but try to turn a blind eye to the faults of others. –Anon.
Love your enemies, for they will tell you your faults.
Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.
-- John F. Kennedy.
Sometimes the hardest person to forgive is youself. But we
shouldn’t be harder on ourselves than we would be on others.
Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.
-- Kris Kristofferson.
So long as we are loved by others I should say that we are
almost indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a
friend. – Robert Louis Stevenson.
Bye for now and thanks for being blogging friends who
are so kind and caring. Take care, till next time, Merle.
