Live laugh and Love

 I just found this and I wanted to save it.

An Inspirational Poetry
Live….laugh…and Love 
By John McLeod

Live well dear friends
In all you do,
Tho' paths be old
Or paths be new,
But to yourself
Be ever true,
Live well!

Laugh often friends
Tho' passing years
Bring, sometimes, smiles
And, sometimes, tears,
For mirth forever
Warms and cheers
Laugh often!

Love much dear friends
For love will bring
The healing joy
And hope of Spring,
Where pain and fear may never dwell
Nor anguish touch….

And so Live well,
Laugh often too,
And more, dear friends,
Love much!

So I thought this might be a daily thing for me but it doesn't seem to be going that way.  But this is my 3rd blog in about a week.  Previously I mentioned I wanted to write a book or was thinking about it.  I really think I am looking for a creative output.  Hoping I can figure that out.

Things I have heard the last few days

So this week I became a Grandma and you think I would be writing about my precious granddaughter, but instead I am writing the crazy things that came out of the mouths around me.
One was from my daughter Adriane after she had some good drugs and it will stick with us "I feel like I have had 85 margarita's"  We laughed because she was wide awake, and had she had 85 margarita's awake would not be where she was at.  Then after Scarlett was born and my son in law comes to tell us it was seemly "She's here"  that was it, just a smile and two simple words.
Then Rochelle who I have spent a good amount of time with the last 48 hours,  we were in Wal Mart and a woman who would like to call herself a hairdresser and likes really big hair we caught a glimpse of and my Rochelle responds "Is David Bowie in Wal Mart?"  Cracked me up.  Then today Rochelle had to get her blood drawn which is never any good and she get's Elmo stickers and now she is wondering what the lab tech was trying to tell her.  He told her she was like Elmo and she is unsure if that is a good or a bad thing.

Do I Want to Blog or not?

So I have been thinking about setting up a blog for sometime now and today I thought I might give it a try.  Why I want to do a blog is something I'm not sure of, I have thought about writing a book and figure this might be a good start.  So I suppose I am curious about my writing skills and how to go about writing a book.  My concern is if I can't figure out what to write in a blog how will I figure out what to write in a book.
I really just want to write about the odd and funny things that occur in the day to day life, though others might not think it funny at all and sometimes I think the funny things that happen around my house might not be funny to anyone else but me.  I really don't care to be one of those deep thinkers and try to figure out the meaning of life, I think there are enough people in this world that attempt to do that and do it badly, we should all be left to figure out are own meaning of life.
A bit about me is that I am a mother of two daughters, a wife of 31 years, a sister, a soon to be grandmother and owner of 2 schnauzers.  One daughter is attending OSU in Stillwater and my other daughter lives in the same town as us with her husband and is soon to be a mother herself.   My daughters of always been a source of laughter and I think they have been raised to not be afraid of living life and enjoy every day.  Most of the time they do just that, but then there are those days they think to hard.  That is mostly going to be my source of writing.  When they think to hard.  So I hope this blog will bring you a bit of sunshine in your day.
