The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. - Jane Austen

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

I’ve always been quite a worrier, so when Michael Schlact put this quote on Twitter, it seemed perfect! Not much else to say really, other than follow him cos he’s a great guy!

“Worrying is like a rocking chair:
it gives you something to do, but doesn’t get you anywhere.”

The Way He Was Raised

Posted on

When I first listened to this song, I was kind of half listening to the words thinking it was an okay song, then it got to the end and it hit me, all of a sudden it made sense. Now it’s one of my favourite songs, I just love the story and how it builds right to the end.

‘Cause that’s just the way He was raised
When people start to gossip, He’d just walk away
He always loved his neighbor no matter what they’d say
Oh, that’s just the way He was raised

Oh, that’s just the way He was raised
there’s no way we can measure
The sacrifice He made
He knew He had to die
For our debt to be paid
Oh, that’s just the way He was raised


The Shoebox

Posted on

I love this song by Chris Young, the words are lovely – and it reminds me of the box full of memories that I have collected over the last 10 or so years.

Don`t forget the little moments
They`re the ones that mean the most
When the way home seems so far away
Take `em out and hold them close
And take a picture with your father
Cause one day he`ll be gone
And don`t forget to fill an old shoe box
Full of things to look back on
