If mother’s day brings out our best… it should be extended to cover every day. We exist because of a mother…. and every day we breath and think is a day blessed because of what they gave to us and taught us… “love”
When I moved to my new house…. I did not notice the Confederate flag on display across the street from me and I don’t care. I learned long ago that what is in a person’s heart is not reflected in a flag they show. 51 years ago I learned that some of the most open/honest and dependable friends I gained were more accepting of a person of color than those who grew up North.
If I expect people to judge me by my character…. I have to be willing to do the same.
The new year is here… and I start to wonder:
As I watch, listen and read about the 100th year since Frank Sinatra’s birth… it reminds me that taking the time to remember is a good thing for all and not just the famous.
The Wiz toured the US in 1976… so that must be when I saw it. Not sure anymore why I went but it blew my mind with joy… positive thoughts and fun. They brought it back to TV live and got it right.
I hated the movie which forgot it was all about the child coming of age… Going out into the world to getaway only to discover the value of family that …when one discovers that snowflakes have meaning and that moment when you want time to be your friend… while you still can return Home!
They got it right!
The Mills Brothers sang together for over 50 years… 2,000 recordings… no grand standing… no scandals just harmony and to watch and listen just brings pleasure and fun!
Patience is a trait… that some people have. As a child I did not know what it was (I had none) as an adult I treasure those with it… like some treasure gold.
The first 25 years of my existence there was this Underwood… and when I use one similar to it memories rush in. It’s nice to visit the golden days but the future is yet to be typed.
