random truths

Here are a few things I've learned.  Some fun, some serious.  All are truths I live by.  Nothing to build a theology on; just fun to think about.

a lifetime is not near long enough to spend with and love my favorite people.

my high school gym is much smaller than it used to be.

spandex should not come in certain sizes, anything bigger than a large, unless it comes under the name of Spanx.

pink is an attitude.

at any point in time, one of my kids is at my "favorite age".

two miles with a walking partner is much shorter than two miles alone.

if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all.  (did you know this isn't scriptural?!  I spent my childhood convinced this was a God-breathed Word.  turns out, it's mom-breathed.)

waxing an upper lip hurts way more than waxing eyebrows - but oh so important!

Top Gun and Footloose and classic and timeless.

always extend a second chance.

fill someone's love tank every chance you get.

"The power of life and death is in the tongue." - Proverbs 18:21

the eyes are the window to the soul - always look through someone's eyes to her soul.

thongs should be worn on your feet, not as an undergarment.

Reese's peanut butter shapes (hearts, eggs, pumpkins and Christmas trees) are WAY better than peanut butter cups.  why, you migh ask.  because there is a better proportion of softer chocolate and peanut butter.  This is a fine science.

diet coke tastes much yummier with cherry syrup in a Sonic cup with Sonic ice (especially during happy hour).

homemade strawberry blubarb jam - my new breakfast favorite.

"You're never fully dressed without a smile.  It's what you wear from ear to ear and not from head to toe that matters."  (Are you singing it?).

a daisy is a very happy flower.  doesn't this make you smile?  simple and happy, a lot like me :)

Friends that make me smile and laugh are treasured. Thanks for making me smile!
My favs are your list: "fill someone's love tank every chance you get." and "thongs should be worn on your feet, not as an undergarment."
And...we sure did get spoiled with that strawberry blubarb jam - that was incredible!
