I believe there is a daily need for one to
be reminded to live a life full of hope.
 Favorite quotations can be inspirational
positive reinforcement, a source of encouragement,
and great reminders.

"This day is all that is good and fair.
It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Forget about the fast lane.
If you really want to fly,
just harness your power
to your passion.
~ Oprah

I am careful not to confuse excellence
with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for;
perfection is God's business.
~ Unknown

   Days of Fall 

It was on Monday early in the Fall.
The leaves were starting to turn,
but hadn’t yet begun to fall.

It was on Tuesday... the day being crisp and clear,
with the Maximilian sunflowers
in spectacular bloom again this year.

Here it is Wednesday with the grasses in Autumn dress.
There’s no denying Fall is upon us
...leaving no room left to guess.

Now it’s Thursday and the leaves are showering down...
The colors of Fall are at their best
with their reds and golds and the occasional brown.

It’s already Friday ...the days go by so fast!
The colors are beginning to fade...
did we really expect them to last?

Here it is Saturday... how can that be?
The ground is now covered with a leafy mat
of multiple colors for all to see.

Alas! Sunday is already here!
Winter is now just around the corner
...marking the passing of another year!

Fall - Halloween Pretzel Rings

  1. Round pretzels
  2. • Hershey kisses (I used milk chocolate)
  3. • Brown and Orange M&M’s
  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place kisses on baking sheet and drop a pretzel ring over each one.
  3. Pop them in the oven for 2 minutes. (Just until they get soft, but not until they melt. You want them to retain their shape.) As soon as they come out of the oven, gently place an M&M on top of the kiss and push down slightly to fill the pretzel with chocolate.
  4. Stick the baking sheet in the refrigerator until they firm up. Store in an airtight container.
