Quote of the Week

Those that say you can't take it with you never saw a car packed for 
a vacation trip. - Unknown

We're taking a little R&R this week, and if you had seen my car, you would know the truth of this quote.

Quote of the Week

The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see. 
- Winston Churchill

View from the Ferris Wheel
The past and the future are irreversibly connected. This does not suggest that we live in the past, simply that understanding and acknowledging the past brings more clarity into the future.  The deeper you look into the past, the more you understand, and the more that you understand, the further you can see yourself going in the future.  Wisdom gained from the past equals wisdom for the future.

My earliest memory involved chocolate. I still like chocolate.

More Than Just a Number

Do you lurk, secure in your anonymity?  Do you regularly visit blogs, read their words and smile, laugh, or even cry and then slip quietly out the back door?  Is that you?

I thought so! I see your footprints, so I know you've been here, but your identity is only a number to me.  

Come now, don't you want to be known by more than just a number? We're real people here. We have names, personalities, interests and thoughts.

Our church has a ritual each Sunday wherein each person (or couple) signs a pew pad which is passed down the row and back to mark our attendance and alert us to visitors.

I will admit that at first we did not sign the pew pad...we weren't ready to be identified. Eventually that changed, and now our attendance is recorded by name, and not just by someone counting heads.

I hope that you will soon feel at home here, and 'sign the pew pad', so to speak, by leaving a comment and let me know how I'm doing.

As always, thanks for visiting Roses to Rainbows.  Y'all come back now, y'hear.

Quote of the Week

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came,—
The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And every thing was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band....
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky....
- George Cooper, "October’s Party"

In our part of the country, October is a beautiful month, often warm with breezes that tickle the leaves from the trees.  

What is October like where you live?

Quote of the Week

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it. - Unknown

We often think that the best way to show love and friendship to our friends and family is being with them and sharing with them as much as possible.  We want them to feel cherished. Our loved ones know and understand that.  They also sometimes need space to just be themselves and do whatever brings them peace, contentment and fulfillment.  

Healthy relationships are not lessened by this, they are strengthened, and it allows us all to bring more interesting things back to the relationship.
