This is an interesting way create a unique home library. It looks like they are using wine storage bins to form the bookshelves (here in the wine country, we don't have those to spare... but still... it's a cleaver idea!). by AislingH

Whether you have kids or not, you can be understanding enough that you do not know the whole situation. Even if the mom seems like a bad mom in the middle of Walmart, she may just be exhausted and had to go to the store anyway, and your dirty looks are just causing her to feel shame on top of everything else by proteamundi

I love these!  There is a jacket too.  Russian (of course... they are fabulous crocheters) but there are "schemes" which means charted patterns.  Too bad the top is not crochet but add a bikini top & you have a nice vintage look swimsuit with cover up.  Or just a neat set of short shorts! by Lovelylovely

Sometimes I contemplate life and existence and the fact there's no viable measurement of a second except another measurement of time that can also be measured by seconds which leaves you wondering how you're alive if you could be zero years old or 150 or non existent because time doesn't exist and therefore you have no age and your birthday was marked by a random number in which you celebrate another year closer to your death but it isn't even real because a year is a lie and your death can happen at any moment so you have done everything but nothing except die but you haven't yet so you're just Here. by graciela

"There are parents who are very favorable to their children receiving education, but appear to be indifferent as to the character of the teaching which they receive...The Latter-day Saints have forsaken everything for their religion. They have been willing to die for it...How persons who have had these feelings concerning religion in their own case can be so careless as to expose their children to infidelity seems a great mystery."

THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift." by eluthrea

This girl captured my HEART today I still feel like I'm getting to know my new Gabriela since I've only had her a week, and I need to save some more, but everything about this new Felicity is AMAZING! Except maybe for the fact that she has brighter lips than all the other dolls (like a shade somewhere in between Tenney and everyone else). It's by no means a deal breaker though! MUST HAVE HER!!!! by harriet
