We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia,
and everyone seems to think yesterday was better than today.

I don't think it was,
and I would advise you not to wait ten years before admitting today was great.

If you're hung up on nostalgia,
pretend today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time.

who knew that lead shot could be so pretty :)
you're right.... we do romanticize the past where we've never been.

it would be fun to be a pioneer in the west....for a day. one day only.
and not on wash day.

have a great week girls~~~

I don't have a garden, I have a patch of green where I kill plants. LOL!!!!...I have about 4 rose trees that somehow, survive my lack of green thumb and give me roses every year...go figure!!!!

Amen to that! Every day brings me closer to the person I am. Certainly don't want to backtrack. We must respect the past in order to honor the present and continue to move forward in positive ways. Many blessings to you! The roses are refreshing and beautiful. :) Tammy
