Fantastic! I love it!

Today the world tried to change me. Tomorrow I think I'll do my best change that around the other way around!

Ah, yes. Changing the world with words. Makes me think of The Word. :)

You go sisters! Together with God, we can change the world--one day at a time.
Unfortunately, I don't think we CAN change the world. I think the source of apathy in so much of society is due to the fact that the problems are so big and, in reality, we are so small. I think the trick is to try to change 'my world' to have an effect on the space around us. Helen Keller said ... I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. I have found this quote to be immensely motivating as it reflects accurately the fact that my reach my not be far does not lessen my responsibility one whit. All that being said, I loved the song and may borrow it for my blog if my cold continues unabated another day.

Dave, thank you for sharing Helen Keller's quote again. It needs to be shared over and over again.

To change our world is to change "the world" because any shift invariably causes a shift that resonates around the world.

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.


He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
