The sun sets on another day...

Do yo ever just sit down and consider your friends? Who they are? How they treat you? Which ones will be there for you? It is funny to watch so many people go through life and talk about their friends and see those selfsame friends abandon them in a time of need, or turn their back or look away as though a friend never existed. The true friends you have are there for you though thick and thing and can go time without talking, and pick up on a conversation as though it started 5 minutes ago. 

I have been blessed by some very good friends and will lay aside those that were less than stellar experiences. I have been fortunate to have several friends I could call at any time and know they would be there, no matter the distance or time. I have been very blessed to have a few that just are there when I need them, even when I do not know it. I know the feeling goes both ways and they know that if and when they call, I will be there as well.

I hope you all have the same friends I have had, find those that will be there and see your opinion and trust you, no matter what. I hope you find or have the friends that last a lifetime, and the friends that will be there for you, no matter what, mostly I hope you find the friends that love you, tell you they love you and you know inside your heart it is true. After all, we never have enough time, but a true friend knows that the time spent in friendship is the most precious of all.

So as the sun sets on another day, cherish your friends, and let them know what you feel about them.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live for each and every day to be the best it can be...

The sun sets on another day...

It is wonderful the way others can sometime light up your life. the kind word, the warm feeling, or the semi terrific moment. When someone makes you laugh. How you appreciate them is up to you. You can sing and dance, laugh and be amazed, or silently appreciate every moment.

There are a myriad of reasons we should make every day a day where we light up others lives, but only fear seems to pull us away from the light we could experience.

So, as the sun sets on another day, lets be those people that light up lives, shove away fear, and live life to its fullest every day.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh a lot, it just makes sense....

The sun sets on another day...

I breath a deep breath today and feel the life flow in and out of me. I suggest everyone do the same to feel the moment, and enjoy Easter. No matter what your religion, the thought behind and celebration of Easter and the forgiveness it brings should not be ignored. So I pause today, and I breath and hopefully you do as well as we enjoy the day.

Sleep sweet, love life, and forgive yourself as you forgive others, and vice versa...

An amazing sun sets on another fun filled day...(and was hidden by clouds)

In the movie "The Twilight Zone" and the associated series there is an episode called kick the can that takes place in an old folks home. (Retirement community, whatever modern political correctness demands)In the movie older people have lost their will to play and another gentleman shows them how with exciting results. The quote that sticks in my mind from the movie is "The day we stop playing is the day we start getting old" and today I considered this and laughed with excitement as I watched a group of teens go over the top in the sunset. 

Today as we waited for a potential sunset and the clouds closed in we were joined by a group of young people who played in the 45 degree temperature and even colder water as though their very lives depended on it. No hold was given and as the Frisbee they threw ended up in the water several ran in after it and were unaffected by the chill that most people my age would cringe at.

No phones, Facebook or other silliness was distracting them, instead they were truly just having fun. I was refreshed by the sight and wondered why were all not doing similar. We should be.


So as the sun sets on another day, let's remember who we are, who we need to be, and play along the way to ensure we are and will be the happiest we can be, and keep the days of being old at bay by always thinking young thoughts and being young at heart. Remember life is good as long as we are good.

Sleep sweet, play a little longer, and love life as if your life depends on it, because maybe it does...
