Dogwood Ramblings

This came via the internet: “There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.” Author unknown

Another one stated: “Today may there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.” Author unknown

These are far better than original thoughts from my brain. The older I get the more difficult it is to speak or write as once before.  Some-timer’s Disease?!

Bob Wagner sterilized my kennel pens and carry-cages, mowed the front area and cut a damaged branch out of a tree. Then, he changed the main gate to the kennel to make for easier access.  With friends like Bob life certainly is made easier for me.  I baked cookies for Sunday’s refreshments after Mass.  Bob and Dana received a tin of cookies for being such sweethearts.  Arlene will be making some goodies also.  A neighbor called about a yearling calf being out.  Thank goodness not one of ours. Sammy Shultz came over to clean up rocks and branches from the back yard (the “pup” likes to carry them around).

“It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good disposition.” —Thomas Jefferson (1785)

Granddaughter Lindsay will be here sometime around the 16th as her half-sister is graduating from Hartville High School.  Lindsay has scheduled a few hours for visiting with family in the Ava area.  Such a busy time what with May events: Ava HS graduation, the Fox Trotter grounds being busy, dog-sitting, etc. It truly is time for me to slow down what with breathing difficulties and like most of older folk, balance problems.  Have to think ahead regarding whatever I’m doing or hoping to do.  And, hopefully, my ceilings will be painted this week – been far too long subjected to the propane stove, cooking grease, smoke, etc.

I hope your gardens are doing well and hope the pastures continue to grow.  Last thing we need on top of our already low rainfalls is a drought.  Be well, pray for all.
