One of my blogging friends that I love to read and visit with is Pom Pom Ponderings She always introduces me to books and thoughts and I love reading about her life, which always encourages me. The week she sent me a book that she has found dear to her heart. I love books that are inspiring to others. I think if I was going to have another blog I would name it after this book. The book is called, " The Pace of a Hen." Isn't that wonderful titile?
The book has this quote that I loved. " Mark Twain once observed that no couple could begin to know the bliss of being married, short of twenty-five years together. In the presence of a companionable middle-aged pair, young romance seems a feeble reed in comparison to the strong plant of their devotion how they weathered the storms and reached such a mature affection that their shining joy in being together is a blessing to all who touch their lives."
I remember standing in the grocery store line when I was turning 30 and one of the titles of the magazines there said something, " How to have good sex after 35" I thought to myself, " Gosh, what happens to you when you turn 50? or 60 or goodness 70? Being now married 34 years, I keep telling the girls, that yes, you will go through hard times, times when you would love to kill your husband times as I often did, or get in the car and just keep driving and never look back. Boy howdy, am I glad I stuck around to be here right now.
I took some pictures this morning of a baby luffa sponge.
of gourds it is nice to be surprised with the different kinds.
Well day is a wastin' I have been reading some old books and one of the characters always says that.
Have a wonderful Wedensday,
go throw your TV set away!
And in its place you can install
A lovely bookshelf on the wall."
