The Glory of Love

You've got to give a little, take a little,
and let your poor heart break a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.


You've got to laugh a little, cry a little,
until the clouds roll by a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.


written by Billy Hill and recorded by Benny Goodman in 1936

Keeping balance…


Work, love and play are the great balance wheels of man's being.

Orison Swett Marden

I have to say that that even though I wasn’t around when the song above was written, it is one of my favorites and is a classic that many have vocalized over the years.

There is a lot of glory in love.  It takes a lot of loving to make this old world go around.  It’s in the give and take that we balance our lives and our days.

It’s not all about me or all about you, but what we can do together that counts.  Your ways are not my ways and my ways are different from yours.  And Gods ways are different than ours.

What we give always comes back around and what I give, I want to be good so I get something good in return, but that isn’t always the way it works out.

Keeping the balance means…being able to take the good with the bad.  


Step with care and great tact, and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act. 

Dr. Seuss

Love is a wonderful thing to have and to give. We just need to practice it more in our lives.

Some days it seems harder than others to keep my balance. But I try to remember to put one foot in front of the other and go slowly, but to keep going.

When I look at evil like today in Las Vegas - I have to look at the helpers to see the good.

Quite the sage that Dr. Seuss!
I love the pink bicycle, too. Reminds me of Flavia's illustrations.

This is a message I needed to hear today.

I have to admit, I never read or followed Dr. Seuss, but I am always hit with the depth of the quotes, even though they were for kids.

But you again hit it out of the park. WE NEED BALANCE and a LOT OF LOVE!
