Absolute Truths

The nicest thing about the future
is it always starts tomorrow.

Money will buy a fine dog
but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

If you don't have a sense of humor
then you probably don't have any sense at all.

Seatbelts are not as confining
as wheelchairs.

A good time to keep your mouth shut
is when you are in deep water.

Scratch a dog or cat and
you will have a permanent job.

There are no new sins,
the old ones just get more publicity.

There are worse things then getting a call for
a wrong number at 4 am,
it could be the right number.

No one ever says, 'It's only a game,'
when their team is winning.

I've reached the age when
happy hour is a nap.

Always be yourself because the people that matter
don't mind, and the ones that mind don't matter.

Be careful about reading the fine print,
there's no way you're going to like it.

Life isn't tied with a bow,
but it's still a gift.

August 12th - love remembers

It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.
 Agatha Christie

One of the most amazing features God gave us is the gift of memory. A very practical gift, it helps us remember what we need to buy at the grocery store, where we last set down our reading glasses, Bible, car keys, phone, etc., and where our children are and where they ought to be right now.

Our memory affects our daily life in a lot of ways. If we have a bad memory most of the time it can bring extra stress to our daily life. Sometimes we seem to forget the simplest things ever, this can really frustrate anybody.  Our Memory is the back bone to all we think and do.

I think that is why it so important to grow good memories in our homes.  

It's great to reminisce about good memories of my past. It was enjoyable when it was today. So learning to enjoy today has two benefits: it gives me happiness right now, and it becomes a good memory later.

George Foreman

There’s almost nothing more rewarding in life than close relationships, be it with a spouse or loved one, friends, children, or our families. One of the things that all of the most cherished and satisfying relationships have in common is lasting memories.

We need to take time time to acknowledge joyful moments and celebrate successes and triumphs, no matter how small, be it your own or someone else’s. Joy can be contagious, and though it might take a little effort, taking part in celebratory occasions together often adds more meaning to relationships. 

 If you fill your home with people and laughter, you will be making memories all along the way. Filling your house with memories will quickly turn it from a mere dwelling into a home. 

Present mirth hath present laughter. What's to come is still unsure. 

William Shakespeare

I liked those absolute truths. Almost like mini proverbs. I am so thankful God did give us memories. Mine might be fading a bit for things I need to remember from the store without a list, but I'm glad I still have memories of loved ones, of growing up, of special times, etc.
