5 Reasons Why The World Is GREAT:
1- Homegrown Tomatoes... Summer is here and it's gettin time for the greatest fuit/veggie ever made. BLTs, Mater sandwiches, homemede pasta sauces,
fresh tomatoe/mozarella/basil slalds. Nothing says summer like tomatoes.
2- You still have time to find someone you can love. It might be a friend, a lover, a boy or girl, it might be helping and showing love to a neighbor,
or a stranger in need. Go and visit someone in a retirement home...or join a volunteer group and help someone, ask someone out on a date.... if time
is so short...hey, what ya got to lose?. find someone to LOVE.
3- Twilight time...Dusk. The stars are coming out and now that it's summer, get a quilt, a bottle of wine, some favorite munchies and sit under the
stars as they peep out and realize just how small we all are... and how wonderful this creation is. Watch the fireflys and bats dance around. maybe
glimpse a falling star. Mix with number 2 and see what happens. hey...go find an old drive-in movie and really treat yourself...there's still a few
around. Extra butter with that?
4- Blueberries/Peaches/Cantaloupes/Melons....when you go out traveling on a vacation or just a quick get away, take the back roads and avoid the
interstates... you will still find some roadside fruit stands and taste the bounty of nature. Get a cantaloupe and cut in half, scoop out the seeds,
and fill with vanilla ice cream....I think I'm tearing up.
5-Take the back roads and visit some small towns. As much as this world has changed and the pace of life is faster and faster, nothing is more
reassuring than seeing the old men sitting down at the filling station ...drinking Cokes and telling lies. The flag still waves on the courthouse
square, right beside the monuments. You can still find mom and pop grills with real home-made burgers and soft drinks on shaved ice, folks still wave
as you drive by slowly.
Yes, the world's got it's problems, but it always has and will. But look at all the wonderful blessings you have and enjoy life...enjoy
living...smile, laugh, walk barefooted, go skinny dipping, buld a sand castle, take three hours and make some homemade ice cream and invite the
neighbors. Go out and LIVE.
