This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Everything I Need To Know, I learned From Noah's Ark...

I wrenched my back over the weekend...so am moving kind of slow... hurts to sit at the computer too long...
So here is an email Mom sent me:  I thought it had some good advice:


Noah's Ark

Everything I need to know,
I learned from Noah's Ark .

ONE: Don't miss the boat.

TWO: Remember that we are all
 in the same boat!

THREE: Plan ahead.
It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.

FOUR: Stay fit. When you're 60 years old,
someone may ask you to do something really big.

FIVE: Don't listen to critics;
 just get on with the job that needs to be done.

SIX: Build your future on high ground.

SEVEN: For safety's sake,
 travel in pairs.

EIGHT: Speed isn't always an advantage.
 The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

NINE: When you're stressed,
float awhile.

TEN: Remember,
the Ark was built by amateurs;
the Titanic by professionals.

ELEVEN: No matter the storm,
when you are with God,
 there's always a rainbow waiting.


God Bless you all
My dear blogging friends.
May you each
and every one
have a wonderful
and safe week.

Sorry to hear about your back. My husband put his breakfast on the table the beginning of the 4th of July weekend and he heard a pop and PAIN. Then he stubbed and broke his toe. We are a pair. Take care.

I am sorry to hear about your back! Ice usually helps me when I do that.

I love the Laguna sunset, its one of my favorite places too, lived there for years.

Great advice from Noah's Ark!
