Good morning and welcome Through My Back Door. The coffee is on, McDonalds, and guess what? There is apple pie and some cookies. I cannot give up my sweets. I guess that is why I cannot give up my 6 extra pounds either. It is good to see you again so soon, and I know you are wondering about the title. Well Olivia spent the night with me last night and we chatted until after midnight,laughing about the past, missing those we no longer have, and planning her future. Lol well, I was anyway. No seriously, we did chat about her future, which I am sure God has a marvelous plan for her. We talked about how nice it is to like our families as well as love them.
The 4th of July is coming and I have happy memories of the 4ths spent in Ohio. We would always go to the Fairgrounds and have a picnic. I remember one year, Mr Dawson, who owned the funeral home across from my Grandparents house, and his wife took my friend Ruth and me to the celebration with him. We rode in the back seat of his big black Cadilac and I felt so important. I asked Ruth if she remembered that when we talked a while back and she didn't. Well I was from the country and our 4th of July's were completely different. We made homemade ice cream, had watermelon, and oh yes people brought their instruments and made music. I remember one time the goat got loose and knocked the outside lights down. Memories. Isn't their a 50's song, Memories Are Made of This?
Well, I could add an H to this title and call it Happiness. I think memories make us happy most of the time. Beth and Amanda say they have learned a lot about me reading my blog. Life has been good to me and I am grateful. We all have our ups and downs, happy times and sad times. I try to live in the now and like Dr Seuss said, Smile because it happened, don't cry because it's over.
With this said I am leaving you with some pictures from the past that are now memories, but make me smile.
Oh the the 3 M's. Nothing like memories, music and feeling melancholy.
Know what else is good? You coming Through My Back Door where life is still good.
