When you finally go back to your old hometown, 
you find it wasn't the old home you missed but your childhood.
-Sam Ewing
Eating popcorn and peaches for Sunday evening meals is a childhood memory of mine.   Now today, we indulge in this combo every once in a while.   When we do eat it, its for a snack rather than a meal.

Your talent is God's gift to you. 
 What you do with it is your gift back to God.

My lovely cooperative boys and I.  Motherhood is my talent.  These boys were given to me by God to love and nurture to the best of my abilities.

A friend hears the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.
-Pioneer Girls Leaders Handbook

Here is my lovely friend Anna.  
She's a great friend to have.  

When my heart is sighing, 
 and she laughs,
my heart sings.

I say something once,
she remembers that once.

She sings.
I love her singing.
It's from the heart.

She randomly chuckles.
I love those random chuckles.

She loves.
She loves many with all her heart.

She listens.
She listens from beginning to end with no interruptions.

I love this friend.
She's the best kind of friend a person can have.
