Happy 22nd Birthday, Keely!

My daughter at three years oldKeely, three years old

Today was my daughter Keely's 22nd birthday. I suppose most parents indulge in a bit of nostalgia on the birthdays of their children. I've been thinking about the little Keely of days gone-by. I can see her personality and sharp little mind sparkling in this photo. It's been great to watch her grow up, though I must say that the years have gone by much too quickly. She'll be graduating from college this December.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
