~♥ Words To Live By ♥~

Today before you think of saying an unkind word
Think of someone who can’t speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who’s crying out to God for a companion.

Today before you complain about life
Think of someone who went too early to the grave.

Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep
Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.

~♥ It's An Honor ♥~

I have been a fan of Gooseberry Patch for many many years.  I honestly can't even remember when I started collecting their cookbooks, but once I bought one I couldn't stop.  I wish I had written in them when I got them so I would know which one was the first one I bought. 

I was asked last year to be an Early Bird Reviewer, which was an honor for me.  I had the opportunity to review, " Best Ever Cookies".  I love baking since I definitely have a sweet tooth.  I love to cook as well, but sweets have always been my first love!

Click Here to order your own copy...you won't be disappointed!

When Jen from Gooseberry Patch contacted me and told me they wanted me to be fan of the week on their Gooseberry Patch Facebook Fan Page I was so excited...thank you so much Gooseberry Patch...I will always sing your praises!

Why not stop over and visit them?

~♥ A Wish List ♥~

I'm sure all of you have things you wish for...thought I'd share with you what's on my wish list:
Just added one more item at the bottom...take a look!

I bought my daughter a Nook Tablet for Christmas.  She absolutely loves it.  I thought it would be nice to have one to download some of the free E-books that are being offered by Gooseberry Patch.


I've always wanted a Kitchen Aide Mixer.  I do a lot of baking and this beauty would come in very handy.

I've been a fan of Vera Bradley for many years...back when it wasn't very popular.  Boy have the styles and patterns changed over the years.  They are so much nicer now.  I'm loving this Doodle Daisy Frame Bag.

I love anything that Susan Branch is involved in.  She was featured in this book along with other fantastic blogging women.  Here's what's written on Susan's website about the book:

"Your personal invitation into the kitchens (and beyond) of 28 top food bloggers and chefs! Based on the Where Women Cook magazine, this unique book profiles 28 extraordinary women who share their passion for cooking and entertaining. Every meal they make and share is a celebration, and each photo-rich profile offers a peek into their cooking environment, favorite recipes (more than 60 of them), and tips on how to turn every moment festive, whether it's a holiday party or a family dinner.The women include: Susan Branch (of course!); popular food blogger Molly Wizenberg of Orangette; bestselling author and blogger Angie Dudley of Bakerella; The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond; Farm Chick Serena Thompson, and other popular food personalities. "- Susan Branch Website         

Felix Doolittle Notecards...the illustrations are out of this world...just so darling!

  So that's a few things on my wish list...what about yours?
