Take just one step at a time

Wow, I did it. I started my blog! I’m glad you’re here. This is the place where I’ll tell you what I’m thinking about, what’s inspiring me, and what’s changing me. This is the place to come when you want a bit of encouragement.

This world is not the easiest place to be. One thing for sure is that you don’t get out of this world without tears and pain. But there’s a secret I want to share with you straight off. If you only have tears, you’re not done. You can’t judge your life by the hard times. It’s kind of like looking at a building that’s not finished and hating it because it doesn’t have carpet. Well, it’s not done yet! If you’re looking at a rose bush, it might start out like a small bunch of thorny stems, all brown and dormant. With time though, the thing WILL blossom. So if you’re having hard times, you have to know that it’s not the whole picture.

Advice for the day: Develop or share your sense of humor. Find a good joke and share it. (I’d love to see the clean ones!) I’ll share the laugh out loud ones here during the month of March.

Bye for now,
Aunt Laya
(pronounced like Princess Leia in Star Wars)

There ya go! Woo hoo! Bravo!

Clean jokes, well, Daddy usually sends me the slightly colorful jokes. Here's one that's not toooo racy:

You gotta love the elderly...

A preacher goes to a nursing home to meet an elderly parishioner.

As he is sitting there he notices this bowl of peanuts beside her bed and takes one.

As they talk, he can't help himself and eats one after another.

By the time they are through talking, the bowl is empty.

He says, "Ma'am, I'm so sorry, but I seem to have eaten all of your peanuts."

"That's okay," she says. "They would have just sat there.

Without my teeth, all I can do is suck the chocolate off and put em back in the bowl
