Laugh when nothing's funny
Dance when there's no music
Sing like you've never sung before
Love till it hurts
Cry when you're sad
Smile when you're happy
Live everyday like it's
Your last day.

As always, thank you for stopping by my little piece of heaven, here in the desert, that I so love to call home. Country hugs and much love,

You know when you were little and went to the carnival and rode on the prettiest horse on the merry-go-round, listening to the cheerful music playing as you made orbit after orbit? That was some kind of fun, wasn't it?

That is EXACTLY what it's like to come to your blog every day! EXACTLY!

That giggling baby is so cute Sherry, reminds me of those baby dolls that used to eat, remember them?? They came with mushy food you mixed up and turned them on and they ate, I think they also went potty too after they ate, LOL!!!! Enjoy your day sweets!

Kerrie said...

I am so sorry you are not feeling well, hugs are in order! We had a fireplace in the house that we built before moving here and I sure do miss it. I wish we even had a pot-belly stove at this point. It is not looking good to get this remedied today. Whatever will be, will be, ♫ hear me singing? Yes, I will send you an invitation for your keeping. luvu, Kerrie

Mom I love Nina Simone. This song is wonderful. I loved the little laughing child it's adorable. The scripture you wrote is true, I have tried to live every day to the fullest lately, I don't want to miss a thing.

I love you.
Hope you feel better soon.

Michelle said...

Sherrie-Of course you can play "Here comes the Sun", you live in AZ...but here in Buffalo, I'm not sure I remember what the sun even looks like...[hee hee}. Have a great week.

mythoughtsmyvoice said...

Thank you for the reminder. These are always in our thoughts but most often forgotten or sometimes too afraid to do just that.


♥Mimi♥ said...

Yes, we need to laugh more - the kind of laugh that makes you hold your sides and wipe tears from your eyes. Whenever I am miserably 'blue' I have a particular friend I call who always makes me laugh. When I hang up the phone after talking with Peg, the day seems brighter and my worried lighter.

julia said...

Great advice!


simple words...but so much behind them. I love the last one. If today were my last day and I knew it. I would call everyone I love and tell them so. Thanks for the thought provoking words.
Blessings and hugs!

Jacqueline said...

A good giggle is so very good for ones soul! That baby doll reminds me of what Goldilocks must have looked like in her wee young years.
Hey Sherry, do you ever watch Joyce Meyer? She is coming to Phoenix in Feb. I highly recommend you going if you are able. I will travel to Spokane (about 7 hours from me) to see her in May again. She has taught me so much about the word of God. Wonderful teacher!

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Same to you my Dear friend...I try and laugh each and every day...hey it might be my last one at my age ha ha!! Many blessings to you girl....hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

I see your pretty Icon on your comments in blogs... Just now I saw your comment, somewhere... "I am fighting bronchitis that is trying to turn into pneumonia. Feel pretty bad. Just wanted to say hi."

So sorry you are feeling so poorly. Please do rest and do whatever the doctor tells you. So the bronchitis will not turn into pneumonia. -le sigh-

My best wishes to you, for a quick return to full health.

Gentle hugs,
'Aunt Amelia'
